    Easy and tasty appetizer. Instead of milk I used same amount of yogurt added a clove of garlic. The family and most friends don't like almonds so I omitted them. Great as canapes also.

    I added a clove of minced garlic and a couple of dashes of Tabasco sauce and topped it with parsley. I left it uncovered. I got rave reviews from my friends!

    Sorry, but this one just didn't do it for me. It's a great concept and the presentation is beautiful. The filling was very bland and ordinary.

    I cut the pastry dough into small squares so it would go further and more people would get to taste it. It is an excellent appetizer.
