My favorite appetizers at parties are bite size ones. I don’t always want to be stuck holding a plate for a long time, and, if there are not a lot of places to sit, dips can be hard to eat when you also have a drink to hold. ‘Thus, bite size! These bite size caprese cups were delicious! The pesto offered the perfect amount of flavor to the puff pastry, while the tomatoes made them fresh and a little bit juicy. They were amazing right out of the oven, but they are the perfect party treat because they were still amazing after they had been sitting out for awhile. I plan on making some of these to bring to my own family Thanksgiving and definitely think you should give them a try as well.
