Delicious! These are very easy to make. I was surprised at how tender and light they are. I followed the recipe exactly as written, made no substitutions. Most of these are now stashed in my freezer, it's great having frozen appetizers on hand for impromptu gatherings. The ones we did eat were very tasty with a dijon dip. Thank you for sharing this great recipe!

I could not find rye cracker's at either of my local grocery stores so I used Town House multi grain crackers which were fine but I can't wait to make again using the rye crackers!! Thank You for a great recipe, I will be making these over & over again for get togethers!!
