Pecan Cream Cheese Bites Recipe

I’ve been searching for great appetizer recipe and when I came across this recipe on MyRecipes I just knew I had to try it.  It originated in the 2009 Southern Living Cookbook.  The only issue I have with it is that I would have to refrain from eating the whole plate!  I had a reader suggest to omit the olives, chives and pepper and instead add chopped dried cranberries.  I think I like her version even better!

By the way, if you are wondering about the photographer of the amazing pecan appetizer photo go check her website out. Jennifer Davick Photography She has some amazing images.  I love great food photos and if I ever get around to writing that cookbook I have dreams of writing then I know who I would like to do the photography!
