But this statement here destroys the entire cuskynole argument. The illustration
showed a large rectangle with lines and a little dimple on the top and this 
is clearly a crescent shaped turnover. I'm sure the same ingredients can be
shaped into the large ravioli sheet (which is my interpretation of the illustration)
but this looks to be a hand-sized stuffed pie.
In fact, even the filling appears to be different than the debated cuskynole since I
made them for a feast.
