    These are a delicious appetizer. Sweet and crunchy. Give them a try, they are really good. I got this recipe from a friend, not sure where they got it from.

      Delicious: my dinner guests tonight loved these! I scaled back the recipe to serve five, which four of us devoured without difficulty! And I really appreciated being able to prepare these largely in advance. Being in basically unfamiliar territory, I made these pretty much to the recipe - except for using wine instead of water in step four. Thanks for sharing this truly delicious recipe, KaraRN. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders. I'll certainly be making these again!

      I also didn't have any pimientos but this dish didn't suffer for it. Very good and my boys loved them (even though they couldn't figure out what was in the middle!)
