These are fabulous. We had some friends over on the weekend for just drinks, and I made these and some sugary-spice pecans as well as a chicken ball(a recipe I have posted). Everybody raved about these--the combination of the blue cheese and the crunch of the pine nuts is excellent. Try them--you will definitely like them and get raves from your guests!!
