Reviews for Walnut-Cream Cheese Finger Sandwiches
"I spread this on pumpkin spice (a seasonal bread) bread for a board meeting....they were gone in 10 minutes. Wished I had made more...big hit. Als use on cinnamon raisin bread....yummy"
"I make the spread as instructed and leave it in a bowl to be used on bread slices, bagels, etc. Simple, but yummy!"
"I thought this recipe as is tasted flat on flavor. With the addition of a tsp each of salt and pepper, along with 2 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning and a few dashes of hot sauce, I could honestly say it tasted better. I would leave out the lemon juice and nutmeg, as they did nothing to enhance the flavor."
"I made this for a potluck at work and everybody loved them, even received some suggestions for next time to maybe add ham and pickes, so i will try that too but for sure i will make them again."
