This is a recipe from my mother. I like to make up a batch or two and store in the freezer till I'm ready to cook them.—Holly Camozzi, Petaluma, California

    These are super easy to make and kids LOVE them. You can make them "fancy" by using blue cheese instead.

    Absolutely. It was very easy. Everyone loved them. They were presentable, easily manageable at a party as a finger food, and they tasted amazing!
