MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2014

Followed exactly. Did not go over very well. I think that maybe it was the brie. Not everyone likes it. May try again with something else.

Outstanding! It's tempting to eat several after tasting them. Made them exactly like the recipe and will make them for special occasions. A little pricey for all the ingredients, but it is worth it.

Tasty treat. I used a light brie and the cheese did not melt very well. It was still tasty nevertheless. I will make with regular brie next time.

I use premade pastry cups, goat cheese, walnuts in syrup and cranraisins. The chives wouls be great for Christmas color.

Also wanted to add that some slivered almonds on top instead of, or possibly even in addition to, the chives would be heavenly! ;)
