Made these for our annual holiday party and they were a big hit. Only complaint from me is that they got soggy fairly quickly. I used wontons, so maybe this was the reason, but I baked them quite thoroughly. They would be great at a dinner where people ate the appetizer in an allotted space of time verses the party we had where people pick at the offerings all night.
