This are so pretty and unusual and the spices set them off perfect. So easy to have in the oven baking while I was working on the rest of dinner. DH and I both enjoyed these and the look was so impressive. The spices are right on. Thanks so much for posting.

Very very good. I used olive oil in place of the butter and added a little cayenne. Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside. I will be making these for the next dinner party I attend.
