Almond Cheddar Appetizers Recipe

Meet the Cook: I always try to have a supply of these on hand in the freezer. If guests drop in, I just pull out and reheat some. You can serve them as a snack, for brunch or along with a lighter lunch. My husband and I have three married daughters, four grandsons and another grandchild on the way. -Linda Thompson, Southampton, Ontario
