I was looking for an easy recipe to take to a Christmas party and let me tell you this was a big hit. The room was literally buzzing about these tasty little delights. Easy, pretty, fast. The only comment I have to add was that I had a lot of cheese spread left over. My 1 lb package of apricots had 56 apricots in it. (OK ...I ate a few). After preparing the 56 pieces I ended up with quite a bit of the cheese mixture left over. Next time, I think I would make 2/3 of the amount of the cheese mixture required. This recipe was appreciated by the gluten free people at the party. A well deserved 5 stars. Thanks Mary.
