Oh so easy with a mild, subtle flavor. These made up in a flash, and after testing a few one evening, I stashed the rest in my freezer. A good appetizer to have on hand for unexpected guests. I increased the garlic powder some. The rolling in parmesan is an important and inspired step here. Thank you for the recipe, Canadian Cookie!
