These are great little appetizers to add to your collection! NOTE: To make ahead, form dough into balls; place on a baking sheet & freeze until firm. Place in freezer bag. Store up to 2 weeks. To bake, place on a greased baking sheet. Bake in 375 oven for 18 to 20 minutes.

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!
