Reviewed Sweet Corn and Chicken Soup

Feb 27, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Um, for the reviewer that said this was "quick and easy to make" - - SERIOUSLY?? This took me TWO HOURS to make.

Made this for the Super Bowl. First off, it's not a cheap recipe. I spent at least $30 just on the pastry, mango, cardamom, and mint. So now I'll be making every recipe that uses cardamom that I can find. lol I was also a little confused about the portions. Maybe someone else can explain it to me? She says cut 8 circles and then cut those in...
