      This is really really good! I absolutely love how simple, elegant and tasty this is! I used goats cheese as I couldn't find brie but it was spectacular. These would be excellent as single parcels for individuals (by cutting the cheese into smaller bits as it melts anyway) or one large one for everyone to take a piece from. Certainly one of my favourites. Reviewed for Phototag Winter 08

      I just knew I would love this...and did. I served this whilst we were having drinks and everybody it was a great succes. I made some leaves with the leftover pastry to decorate the top. I can see myself making this again and play with different ingredients.

      WOW! I have always wanted to make one of these as an appetizer and I cannot believe how simple it was to make and how absolutely delicious it is to eat! Can't wait to serve it for family and friends, but for now -- DH and I are enjoying it all by ourselves. I used sundried tomatoes and olives vs. the red bell peppers; however, I'll be willing to bet they are equally delicious. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, June, 2013.
