feeling like making baby calzones

Calzones...yum!  Don't you just love the cheese and the bread and the sauce and everything?  I've never made them before, but gave it a whirl tonight.  We made baby calzones.  They were so simple to make...In fact, I made up the recipe on the fly.  I really hope you're comfortable eyeballing the cheese and such on this one...because you really just have to!  Let the photos be your guide.  Measurements are not important. (But if you're really a stickler for measurements, I've added approximations to the bottom of this post)

You will need:

Pillsbury canned Grands biscuits 
Parmesan cheese, grated
Ricotta cheese
Shredded mozzarella or we used Publix Six Cheese Italian blend
Garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350.

Pop that can of biscuits open.  Once you've recovered from the scare, take a rolling pin and flatten out the biscuit. I rolled it only in one direction, giving it an oblong shape which I found easier to manage in the long run.

Shake some Parmesan cheese onto one half of the flattened biscuit. Then a bit of shredded cheese, then about a teaspoon of ricotta. Sprinkle with garlic powder and a little salt.  Make sure to leave room on the edges for the fold as shown above.  Fold the biscuit over on itself.  Crimp with a fork:

Place in the oven at 350 for 14-17 minutes or until the biscuit is golden brown. 

Serve with spaghetti sauce for dipping and a salad. Yum.

Of course, you can also use the leftovers for lunch!

Served with spinach, cherries and sauce for dipping:

For each biscuit you will use about a teaspoon of ricotta, a teaspoon of shredded mozzarella, a dash of garlic powder and a dash of salt. One can of biscuits usually has 8 biscuits.
