I used real butter too and the whole family loved them! We had a lot of fun experimenting too- rolling cheddar cheese into the pastry & sprikling with chili powder & garlic; adding a tad of sugar and sprinkling with cinnamon & sugar; we even cut some with the cookie cutters. They are wonderful as is, it was just extra fun to play around with the recipe. My kids thought these were great dipped in applesauce or peanut butter sauce.

MmmmmMmmmmMmmmm I used real butter because that is what I had. I also added chives, but now that I have tasted them, I don't think they needed anything else added. The real problem is going to be not eating them all before the party I made them for.
