Top Review by MaddysMom

This WAS really good. I thought some of the amounts were a little off (too much butter, too much cinnamom), but it's really easy to adjust to your taste. I served these at a dinner party for an appetizer and they were a huge hit. I was looking for an easy way to serve brie, not wanting to mess around making a pretty platter of bread, crackers, and fruit, and this was perfect.
