      What a delicious addition to our New Year's meal. I served them before the meal was ready and they were a hit; especially with my DH. Loved the flavor bite of the gorgonzola cheese and the crunchy pistachios -- it makes them sooo rich tasting and pretty too. Made for PRMR, January, 2014.

      These just didn't work out for me. Dough would not come together (crumbled trying to wrap it). I added more butter and got it to come together then, but although I baked those fine after chilling, and extra carefully managed to get them to the plate in the photo, they still fell apart later, just picking them up. I think it is the cornstarch, as I looked at similar recipes that did not contain that. Perhaps others will have better luck---they are gorgeous if they would hold together and the taste is really nice. ~s

      Very tasty! I left out the pepper but made as is otherwise. I only did a few shakes if the salt shaker, but should have measured it out because my wafers could have used a little more. Ate these plain and will a little caramelized onion dip (Trader Joes) and both ways were very good. Made for Photo Tag.
