The girls and I had an appetizers for dinner night and made the Ricotta and Proscuitto Pies. These simple appetizers bake in mini-muffin cups and are proscuitto with a ricotta cheese filling, topped with a cherry tomato. The cheesy filling had a good taste and the proscuitto made it extra savory. I enjoyed this one-bite appetizer, but it must be for a more grown-up palate, as the girls weren't as thrilled with it. But I was pleased by both the taste and the visual aspect and it would make a great holiday appetizer.
This is a great book to have on hand for holiday entertaining that gives great dishes that are prepared simply with few ingredients and taste great!
"4 Ingredient Christmas" is published by Atria. It is $15.
