    These are so pretty, Peggy. I have used the yogurt in sweet dishes, but never savory. Does it have the traditional yogurt tang, or is it absorbed by your mix-ins? The cookie cutters are a great idea for bread trimming!

      Hi Kelly, thanks so much, I think they are lovely for a party table- and sooo quick to put together. The tang of the yogurt is most immediately absorbed by the horseradish, and some might like to add in even a tad more horseradish for a bit stronger kick in flavor. The garlic and herbs absorb the tang flavor upon setting, and I really liked the flavors incurred even more so after about a half hour. Since the yogurt is thick and creamy it spreads quite nicely onto breads for canapes, and of course, there are endless varieties. The cookie cutters make the canapes so elegant, and yet, they literally take moments to produce!

      Hi Rachel, Thanks much. These are so perfect- I love how elegant and formal they appear when in fact, you can whip them up in minutes! Using the sliced cocktail pumpernickel or rye bread, these can also most easily be prepared a few hours in advance.
