    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!
