Very interesting! Was very easy to throw together. My only problem was it sticking to the pan. Even though it didn't say to do so, next time I'll grease the pan. DH loved them though!

We had these for an appetizer and they were great! I baked them in a 9x13 pan so they would turn out really thin. I thought that I might have to bake them for a shorter time because they were so thin, but I actually had to bake them about 10 minutes longer than the recipe said. I used a Pyrex pan, though, so that could be why. Some people put them on crackers, which worked out well. They were good by themselves, though, too. I greased the pan just to be sure they wouldn't stick and they came out just fine. I will definitely be making this again!
