These are a family favorite. They are lovely for a spring party. You can use just about any filling and seasonings you want to.

THIS SOUNDS YUMMY. I have not tried this recipe yet; however, I have made a similar appetizer by filling the "pea boats" with seafood salad. They are delish.

What a neat idea. I made this exactly as is and it was great. It also did what all good recipes should do and gave me other ideas! I did the same thing with pimento cheese and peanut butter. Even mixed up whipped cream cheese and added drained crushed pineapple to it.
