Yummy. I scaled this recipe down to 12 canapes to nibble on with DH over a glass of wine. Because I had it on hand, I used Roquefort instead of gorgonzola and walnuts instead of pecans. Also, just a whole-grain seeded bread as rye is next to impossible to find in Greece, but I was true to the essence of the recipe and it was delicious.

It seemed really salty to me, but I am sensitive to salt. My mother loved them. I ended up pairing them with some strawberry jam. Will definitely make them again and am planning on having them at my wedding reception (it is going to be an English tea.)

Yummy, tangy, very good combination. Thank you for posting, I served this to a small gathering at my house, and they disappeared FAST! :)
