“This came from one of my favorite cookbooks, "A Treasury of Great Recipes" by Mary and Vincent Price. The ingredients are nearly identical to other recipes listed here but the preparation, cooking, and presentation techniques are different. They make great appetizers, even at room temperature or just gobble them around the stove.”
