Wow, these are excellent! And easy! I made these last weekend for Football Sunday... They disappeared way too quickly. One confession, however: I used spreadable plain cream cheese in place of the boursin, then added in minced garlic and fresh oregano. I will definitely make these again. My husband insists! Thank you Lainey, and congrats for the FB Pool win!
