If you like sweet with salty and zesty, try thistasty tart bubbling with sweetness from the berries, tartness from the lemon juice, and saltiness from the blue cheese. Delicious!

I made some changes in order to be able to sample the recipe. I had some left over won ton wrappers from another meal so placed them in a mini muffin pans. I then spooned the filling into the little cups and baked. I also used homemade mascarpone, sugar, and the smaller listed amount of blueberries. I feel I would prefer these to be entirely savory & would leave out the sugar next time. Thank you for the recipe!
These were good! I was intrigued by the mixture of flavors - and the addition of green onion and parsley. Definitely yummy. The flavors were very pungent -fairly well balanced, but I personally wanted a little bit more sugar. Some of the juices/melting cheese also melted out when I made them, so I recommend using a little bit less filling. Good luck in the contest!
