I cannot, just cannot, allow myself to have even one of these as I'm setting them out, or I know there will be none left for the party. They're best eaten still a little warm (though be careful that they're not hot or everyone will have a burnt mouth) though still very good cold and, as with the olives, make a good present, bunged into a jar and tied with a ribbon or somesuch.
