Made these for a July 4th party and they were gone in minutes!
This took way more than 30 min. to make. The taste was good but I couldn't use my piping bag, it just got jammed with the cheese so I needed to use a 1/2 teaspoon which added to the time.
This recipe is so easy to make. The drizzle of vinegar adds a little zing to each bite. Very fresh and great for a backyard get together.
I made this for 4th of July and everyone loved it. I also used the leftover filling to top a pizza and it was delicious.
Took this to a fourth of July party and everybody loved it. Everyone commented on how good they were. Scooping out the tomatoes was a bit time consuming, and piping the filling a bit fussy but pretty quick, and they looked great. The whole recipe took about an hour and cost about $10. Definitely a keeper.
