    I tried out a "test" recipe before making them for company, good thing I did, they were terrible. Too greasy and too floury tasting.  -  15 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My mother-in-law made these for years and I have taken over since her death. Our family loves these so much. One difference in our recipe is that we use about 1/2 of the cheese that this recipe calls for....I don't know, but this might cut down on the "greasiness" that some reviewers wrote about. And they really are "addictive".  -  12 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I just wanted to add my vote for these crispies. I took it to a luncheon today, and everyone raved about it and wanted a copy of the recipe. One lady is already going to make this appetizer for a party tomorrow night! YUM!  -  22 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
