Made these as per the recipe, but with one slight change ~ Instead of the mango chutney, I used an Apple & Raisin Chutney that I'd purchased the day before when we went to the Oak Glen apple orchards & had a blast buying all kinds of apple products! Anyway, THESE TASTY LITTLE BITES ARE JUST THAT ~ GREAT! I did serve them with cream cheese & the toasted baguette's but might go with a nice, poppy seed cracker another time! Thanks for sharing a very nice recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Pleasse Review My Recipe]

I made the chutney up the day before as advised, and served it on top of rice crackers with local soft goat's cheese for an amazing appetiser with a FLAVOUR EXPLOSION!!!!!! Easy, as you can make the chutney the day before....and very versatile! I used my own mango chutney, and LOVED the chutney mixture! I am so sorry Annacia, I took the photos and FORGOT my lovely apple slices!! A great recipe with all my favourite ingredients! Thanks! FT:-)

I love these little babies ~~ mainly for their great taste, but they are also easy to fix + make ahead friendly & were perfect as a finger-food apply prior to the soup course of our Christmas Eve dinner. I made the chutney/cranberry mix + toasted baguette slices lightly brushed w/olive oil the day b4, so it was an easy matter to spread the cream cheese + chutney mix & present them to DH & my MIL. They were very well-received & I see them working equally well as part of a traditional cheese & fruit platter for dessert so popular here. They are great for the holiday season, but will have their place yr-round for me to provide eye appeal & variety to the dessert genre. Thx for posting this nifty recipe for us. :-) ~ 12/27 ~ *Edited to Add* the 5* the recipe deserved, but I somehow neglected to include in my review. :-(
