Spicy Cheddar Chive Rounds

Spicy Cheddar Chive Rounds

At our house, they’re gone in just a day or two.

So delicious with an evening cocktail – even better alongside a cup of Homemade Classic Tomato Soup. This recipe makes one hundred Spicy Cheddar Chive Rounds, which sounds like a large quantity but they go very fast. I don’t know the origin of this recipe. It was given to me by Pam Ameen. Thanks, Pam!
