During the Christmas season we have an appetizer dinner with two other couples. This super simple dessert is one of the items we've served. It was very popular and you can use it for either an appetizer or dessert.—Judy Wilson, Sun City West, Arizona

"So simple and delicious - made this for a function tonight had several requests for the recipe! Served as an appetizer with regular crackers but would work just as easily as a desert with sweeter cookies/biscuits or pound cake!"
