MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 10, 2014

"I love this recipe and these things never last. I have made this both the original way, and with a couple changes - you can't lose. Instead of fresh tomatoes, I've used canned diced tomatoes seasoned with rosemary, well drained. It's best to eat these fresh from the oven and not let them cool at all, so put these in just as guests arrive."

"Very good and easy to make! The only thing I did different is not to bake as long as directed. My family doesn't like it to crispy! Just their preference! :-)"
