    Bake about 20 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from pans to wire rack. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Cool bites completely on wire rack. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Freeze uncovered at least 2 hours. Place bites in labeled airtight freezer container, and freeze no longer than 2 months. About 30 minutes before serving, heat oven to 350°F. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet about 18 minutes or until warm.
  • Replace basil with any other fresh or dried herb to create your own flavor dimension!
