Its my favorite one..Love the adiition of flax seeds....I am hungry now...

Alexa said...

I wonder how they would come out with gluten-free flour. It sounds so good to me. I love this type of finger food. We have a restaurant here that serves only that with a variety of different fillings. It would be my kind of place if not for the fact that I can't have wheat.
