Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this as a birthday gift to my grandmother-in-law. She truly enjoyed them, as did I.

Given the response I have decided to make each family member a dozen as a holiday gift from the heart along with a box of tea.
Easy, Fast & oh, so yummy! Made them for my Sunday School Class, and everyone wanted the recipe! A real winner.
