This lovely appetizer recipe is a simple & easy holiday recipe. It came from the Taste of Home Holiday Recipe Card Collection. Enjoy!

I have listed the cream cheese & sour cream as reduced-fat. You can use full fat, if that is your preference. But, around the holidays, most of us, would like to skip some calories.
