This was posted in a local newspaper in Portland, and I clipped it right away. It sounds wonderful though I've never made it. Great for holidays!

This was so very easy and so elegant. Forgot to brush with the milk, but it didn't seem to make a difference. It was still beautiful and incredibly delicious! Thank you!
I make this recipe with pecans (because my boyfriend is allergic to walnuts) and everyone swoons. I serve it on thin slices of really good baguette. Heaven!
Delicious! This is a very simple, yet elegant appetizer. My party guests raved about it!
