    Scoutie's Note:

    These are such great little appetizers, especially with fresh tomatoes and basil in season right now. The recipe calls for fontina cheese, but I have used freshly grated parmesan with good results as well. The trick of laying another baking sheet over the dough while they bake really makes them crisp. This is adapted from Food Network, hope you enjoy.

      These turned out fabulous and are so pretty and tasty. I was lazy and did not roll out the dough. It was still folded in 3 sections out of the box and I took my round cutter and punched thru the dough. I got 9 circles. Baked as directed and dusted with sea salt while still warm. The baking can be done ahead of time. Topped with Two-Step Artichoke Tapenade > adding Kalamata olives to the blend. It's a great appetizer for those who want to impress! Thanks for posting s'kat!
