Ms. Love to cook in Chicago

Kate from Chicago, IL

I tried the recipe but used individual premade puff pastry shells, they made fantastic finger food appetizers. Delicious!

Wonderful recipe for Christmas gatherings!

M from madison, Wisconsin

This recipe is very easy to make, impressive to serve and delicious to eat. Great recipe for Christmas parties. I also decreased the calories by using the light versions of the cream cheese and gorgonzola.

Easy Impressive Appetizer

Janine from Mundelein, IL

This is an easy, make-ahead, impressive-looking appetizer. I have made this several times for my family at the holidays. I have substituted blue-cheese for the gorgonzola and everyone enjoyed it.

I've made this as written, and also "Lightened" it up using reduced fat cream cheese and reduced fat blue cheese- delicious both ways!

Used Puff Pastry

Michela from Glendale, AZ

I do not have a tart pan, so I made it with puff pastry and it was outstanding! I have been giving this recipe out to many of my friends. Just roll out puff pastry and bake the same way.
