  • On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 13x9-inch rectangle, letting dough rest as needed while rolling. Transfer dough to the prepared baking sheet, reshaping as necessary. Spoon filling lengthwise down the center of the dough, spreading into a 2-1/2-inch-wide strip. Using kitchen scissors, make cuts at 2-inch intervals along each long side, cutting from the edges almost to the filling. Alternately fold opposite strips of dough at an angle across the filling, lightly pressing ends together in center to seal.
