Mid-week entertaining can be a bit of a challenge, especially in the jam-packed weeks leading up to Christmas.  Our new neighbours were dropping by for a drink and a few nibbles and I was fresh out of ideas and time.  Thank heaven for Google.  I searched for Quick Appetizers and was rewarded with Real Simple’s 20-Minute Party Appetizers.

My interest was piqued by the combination of soft ricotta cheese and golden raisins, and reasoned that candied ginger would make an excellent substitution for the almonds, as one of the guests is allergic to nuts.  I’m happy to report that these were a snap to make, and disappeared as quickly as I produced them.
