  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat 4 (1/2-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray.

  2. Divide dough into 4 portions; stretch each into a disk. Arrange ham and cheese in the center of each disk. Gather the edges together, leaving the top slightly open, to make a "purse" with each disk. Place each in a prepared muffin cup. Bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
