    GaylaJ's Note:

    These are delicious little nibbles. I love their simplicity--they are quick to put together and can easily be made on the spur of the moment for an impromptu gathering, but can also be prepared up to a day ahead. The recipe is adapted from one published in "In Style" magazine. Prep time includes 15 minutes refrigeration time.

      These are tangy, creamy, crunchy and delicious. I made them for a baby shower and since some were left over, I put them in a freezer bag and saved them. I melted them over some simple grilled chicken (1 per chicken piece) with a lemon & sundried tomato sauce -- it made a great quick dinner and it looked like I fussed for hours. These are not just for appetizers anymore!

      I've made this- but made one major yummy change: I started with seedless grapes, put the goat cheese (and cream cheese if desired) around the grapes, and then dusted it with the chopped pistachios!
