Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were great! These were great! I have to admit that until I took them out of the oven I was convinced that they weren't going to work. Adding the eggs and other ingredients to the ball of dough was a bit of a mess, and it all seemed to separate. Once I saw what was happening I dumped it all into the mixer and let it do the rest. I highly recommend doing that to get it all mixed well. I loved the chive flavor, but then again, I love chives. Next time I think I will add a dash of salt but that's it. The texture is beautifully crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. YUM!

So easy.....I substituted green onions for the chives,,,excellent....I have also substituted other cheeses with success. The first time I didn't know what it should look like so was a little confused. But I have it down now and it is a favorite to take to parties. Someone always asks for the recipe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good! Very good! A little weird to make, the dough did seperate and I wasn't sure it would work but they turned out great. I skipped the chive as others did, and thought they could use some salt. But otherwise a fairly easy recipe.

These were easy enough to make, but even with more seasoning and stronger cheese they still tasted bland. They also tasted better cold rather than warm. I will not be making these again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, I love chives. Oh, I love chives. Had them tonight with my chili. I could eat them just sitting down with the plate and some milk. They would go good with just about anything.
