      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.

      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.

      Absolutely adorable gorgonzola shortbread and cute green colour. I left the lemon zest out, just didn't fancy that. Very easy to put together.
