this was really good. i made this for dd's spaghetti dinner bday party. i made this along with bruschetta and crostini. as another reviewer said...the lemon peel makes this special and gives a burst of flavor. i used a whipped cream cheese with chives and roasted garlic and herb flavored goat cheese. i also added lots of cracked black pepper. it was really nice because i was able to make everything up ahead of time and it was a cinch with the food processor. served it all together on the same platter just like the photo! thanks for sharing!! nice and easy appy!

This is a great appetizer, everyone in my family just loved it, and all of my friends went crazy over them. Deeeeeeeeeelicious.

The lemon peel makes this spread very special. I cut the recipe in half and added 1/2 t salt...which initially I thought was too much. But it has aged nicely. I made some bruchetta topping but personally prefer the toasts with just this spread. Delicious!
