Ok, friends, it's time to put on your party pants. Or your pajama pants. Do what you feel. I'm probably more apt to do the latter. But whatever the case, these little appetizer bites will have you ready to welcome the holiday season.
Socca, a type of crepe or pancake made from chickpea flour, is most often seen in the form of a pizza or flatbread. Whipping up the simple socca batter and baking it in a muffin pan makes for perfectly bite-sized rounds. Adding fresh, chopped rosemary makes these minis soccas especially delicious.
Top with a cube of brie, a dollop of cranberry relish, a sprinkle of pecans, then toss it back in the oven for a couple minutes minutes to make things nice and melty, and you've got a quick appetizer to serve with minimal effort!
