"Every time I make these for a potluck, they disappear and I'm always asked for the recipe. I have used the pre-made tartlet or hors d'oeuvres cups found in the freezer section vs. making the wonton starts. They're not as cute but are a real time saver. The olives sound like a strange ingredient but they really add a great flavor!"

"Made these for this year's cookie party. I didn't make enough, as they were gone a half-hour into the party! I omitted the olives, as I am not the biggest olive fan and I had forgot to get them at the store!"

"This is one of my all time favorite recipes. I made this for my annual x-mas party about 3 years ago...it's ALWAYS gone before everything else. VERY GOOD!! **I did have trouble finding the wonton wrappers so I used the Filo pastries found in the frozen section..very good!!!"
