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

Wonderful recipe for Christmas gatherings!

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

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.
