    I did this for a cocktail party and they went over very well. I did 2 differenty types, 1. a mix of asiago & parmesan and 2. sharp cheddar. The first stayed in little balls but the cheddar melted during cooking and turned out more like little cheese cookies.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation

      Sara...not only does this recipe look wonderful...the fact that they're baked is a bonus.

      Thanks so much for this appetizer treat ;o)

      Flavourful wishes,

        This recipe was very good, but I used walnuts instead of the hazelnuts because they are very expensive.
