My kids love hotpockets so I decided to start making them at home. That way I can fill them with their favorites and make the crust taste mmm mmm good too! I tried several recipes and eventually put together this one from my favorites. These are easy and able to be filled with your favorites. Try em for sleep overs, parties, last minute company.

The original recipe is from pillsbury..I added a few ingredients and the topping for the dough. I also do not lay one sheet of dough on top of the other and slice. I fold the dough over to make pockets instead.
