If you adore artichokes, you should adore this CHEESY appetizer. This takes your next gathering to the sophisticated level. Great for special occasions, if you are having a large get together you will probably want to double this recipe, and keep it warm.
This recipe came from one of my husband's friends. Odd sounding ingredients (all two of them), but VERY addicting! He suggested eating them with Bugles and I can tell you it was an excellent suggestion. Sweet from the jelly, creamy from the cheese, and a little bite from the pepper. Mmmmmmm.
Our family "adopts" many new people as they enter our lives through the military, college, work, etc. I always ask them to bring a "family tradition" dish with them when they attend holiday meals and then we incorporate their traditions with ours. I have gathered many favorites over the years by doing this and there is a fond memory attached to each recipe. This cookie came from a college friend of my cousin Jane. It is simple in flavor (not too sweet) and is like a cake cookie.
