  • “I can’t believe this recipe has been posted so long, with no reviews. That is a shame. These are some tasty temptations! I’m not sure if I rolled them out thin enough or cut them skinny enough. Next time, I may also add a bit more cayenne, as my pinch didn’t do it. I’ve made a few different variations of these, and enjoyed the addition of parmesan, as I’ve never included that before. I also used my food processor, and they were ready to be rolled out in less than 2 minutes. YAY, for quickness! Bergy, thanks so much for sharing this gem! :-)”
