Found in Cooking Light these turned out so good! They were warm and creamy and looked really pretty.

Top Review by Siren Chef

We've been making these nearly weekly since the May edition of Cooking Light and they are a huge hit! They look so impressive with guests - just beautiful, especially with the stems still on! I don't use sage and instead use extra green onion and stir the cilantro right into the cheese. We sprinkle paprika on top just for addded prettiness :)
