These are really good. I added a pinch of savory, and substituted sesame seeds for the almonds. Easy enough for every day, and tasty and attractive enough for company. Made for Football Pool 2010 week 1. Thanks for posting!
This was so easy and delicious. I used dried thyme and skipped the almonds as my family doesn't care for fruit/nuts in food. I will make again thank you for posting. Made for Fall PAC 09
