Mmm, what a wonderful bite-sized treat! The great flavour combinations and lovely presentation make this the perfect party food. But the recipe is also easy and quick, so what's not to love?! :)
My sis and me had this with crudites as a light dinner and loved it. YUM!
The only change I made was to use chopped pumpkin seeds in place of pistachios as I was out the latter. They added a nice earthy note.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Syd!

Yum! The toasting of the spices along with not grinding them too much gives this a wonderful nutty / slightly crunchy texture on the outside which was great contrast against the cream cheese center. I used raw pistachios so toasted them whole along with the herbs and then ground them all together in the mortar.
