Top Review by Chef Edlear

These are delicious! The recipe is clearly written and easy to follow. The combination of the sweet cornbread mix and the blue cheese is great. I chilled the mixture for the full hour as directed, rolled out some of the balls, got distracted and had to re-chill the mixture and finish rolling the next day. They did roll out even easier then. They are very delicate, pretty, and tasty. I froze them right away, and we have been enjoying them at our leisure. Thank you, Molly for sharing this recipe.
