As promised, here are the recipes for the Appetizers from the holiday party.

The first set is from the Pillsbury website.  They're called Tomato-Pesto Appetizers.

Here's what you'll need:
  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto (I make my own and it's super easy to do)
  • 3/4 cup diced seeded tomato
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can (7.5 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated tender layer or buttermilk biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Heat the oven to 375 degrees and spray 20 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.

Dice the tomato.

Combine pesto, tomato, and mozzarella cheese in a medium bowl.

Separate the dough into 10 biscuits.  Separate each biscuit into 2 rounds.  Press 1 round in bottom and up side of each mini muffin cup.

Spoon about 2 teaspoons tomato-pesto filling into each cup, press in lightly.

Sprinkly with Permesan cheese and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Serve while warm.

Then there are the super easy Cucumber Sandwiches.

What you'll need:
  • 1 (8 ounce) package whipped cream cheese
  • 1 (7 ounce) package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
  • 1 (1 lb) load cocktail rye bread
  • 1 cucumber

Mix the whipped cream cheese and dressing.

Grab the cucumber and rye bread.

Peel and slice up the cucumber.

Spread the cream cheese mix on the bread, top with a slice of cucumber.

Eat one to make sure they taste good.

Eat a couple more to make sure that they all taste good.

Serve the rest.
