QAs Christmas draws near, I'm looking for simple yet festive appetizers that can be taken to parties away from home. Can you help?

Festive doesn't need to be fussy. The three fabulous and easily portable recipes mentioned here can each be prepared in 20 minutes or less! Sometimes it's simply the ingredients—like colorful pimiento or spinach-flavored tortillas—that make an appetizer festive. Fiesta Pinwheels are a perfect example. Sometimes it's flavor combinations—like mixing different cheeses to create complexity with little effort, such as in Creamy Blue Cheese Spread.

Add to the cheer by showcasing your appetizers on holiday serving ware—a snowman plate for finger foods, a red ramekin for dip, or perhaps a candy cane bowl for chips, such as Seasoned Butter Pita Chips. Tuck a thank you note under your holiday dish and leave it behind as a surprise hostess gift.

Happy Holidays!
