    Freda2 Brown's Note:

    A colleague would make these to bring to work more than 20 years ago; I loved them then and still do now. This is a great appetizer for a garlic and artichoke lover.

      This was very unusual. I had problems making the texture taste "done". Thank you for posting.

      These were wonderful little appetizers -- I've never had anything quite like them before! The texture is unique and pleasing and the taste is great. The recipe was clear and easy to follow. I had a little baby spinach I needed to use so I sauted it and a little onion with the garlic, and I had to substitute part shredded cheddar cheese because I ran out of parmesan. They were delicious this way but I think the original recipe is probably better, with a more concentrated artichoke and garlic flavor, so I'll make them that way next time (though I may use a little finely minced onion again). Many thanks -- from one artichoke and garlic fan to another! :)
