Butter the canapes very lightly on one side. Heat oven to 210 degree C. Place canapes on the grill rack. Grill for five minutes or till golden crisp. Cool the canapes on a big tray so that they shouldn’t overlap. Store in an air tight container. They can be stored for two to three days. Though, freshly made are best.
