Recipe Comments & Reviews

I liked these, easy to make, although I had a hard time trying to make the triangle formation, they actually came out rectangular, which is fine as it was a nice contrast to the others on the xmas tray. They look nice and taste pretty good too!
I made these with 1 heaping tbsp. of frozen orange juice concentrate instead of straight juice and they were wonderful. Very prettty on the tray and tasted great. Very easy to make.
