Reviews for Rye Party Puffs
"these are really good. not the best appetizer i've ever made but good"
"Followed the recipe exactly and got a thumbs up from 5 taste testers. I personally think I would double the corned beef next time."
"The puffs are really great. Next time I will try more meat as I thought the filling flavor was a bit bland"
"if i take these to a party i had better come with plenty of copies of the recipe. only thing i have changed is to go easy on the amount of filling. any leftover goes great on crackers, etc."
"Fantastic - I only used one 8 oz cream cheese. I substituted the mustard for Dijon & added 2 oz of extra meat. Wonderful. Can't wait to make it again!"
"This recipe showed up in Taste of Homes years ago. My aunt decided to try the recipe for a pot luck. The puffs were a huge hit. We have been making these for get togethers ever since."
"<p>The puffs could absolutely be made ahead and froze. Once they're completely cooled, pack them in a freezer bag or other suitable container for your freezer and store them for several weeks. If they're a little soggy when you thaw them - pop them back in the oven for a couple minutes.</p><p>Then just fill them before serving! You could even make the filling a day or two ahead if you needed to. It would make prepping the day of your event much easier.</p>"
"how do these hold up to freezing? Would you freeze the puffs unfilled? Thank you."
