Christmas or not (in this case it was NOT!) these are wonderful little tasties! I made the whole batch & took to a park-wide potluck for all to enjoy, & they did! Will be doing this one several times during the year as they will enhance my finger food buffet, just as they would anyone's! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
