  1. This looks not only lovely but SO tasty! I am planning on trying it for our church get-together next week. But what could I substitute the wine with? Any other liquid?
    THANKS for your quick reply, and for this recipe.

    • You can substitute white grape or apple juice in place of the white wine. This does look delicious! And completely adorable. I’m making this on Sunday for a baby shower in giving. It will be a beautiful centerpiece for our food table! Thank you.

  5. I love this recipe, but I’m from the US and don’t understand the measurements. Would it be possible to translate it into cups, ounces.

  6. Superbe recette ! Merci beaucoup de France ! 🙂

  7. This looks absolutely beautiful and delicious! I’m thinking of bringing it to a party in a few weeks. What type of crust does this make? More like a bread, crescent roll, pie crust? Just wondering what type of texture it comes out with?

  8. I have made this using prepared pizza dough , 3 times , and it’s always a hit !
