Recipe by Manami
These little cups are wonderful! However, I veered slightly from the original recipe. I added some horseradish and used onion/chives cream cheese. They make nice appetizers! It was originally the recipe of Doris Geist, from Bethlehem, Pa. Bake-Off 34 in Phoenix, 1990. I have some nerve changing a Bake-Off recipe don't I? It came about because I bought the wrong type of cheese and then decided to add a little kick to it!
