This recipe is amazing! Everyone loved them...

Best dessert! Sweet yet tart. I ommitted the glaze and topped with orange flavored whipped cream for a dazzling finish.

I made these for a New Year's party and they were fun, easy and delicious! I bought the ingredients to make the glaze, but they were so good without it that I decided to skip it because they are sweet enough already.

I would rate this a 5 star recipe. I fixed for an open house and not only did they win everyone over, they looked beautiful on the dessert trays.

These are awesome, I make them every year for the holidays. Not sure why they added a glaze to the recipe this year but they are perfect without the glaze.

I made this for a neighbor's holiday get-together and they quickly disappeared. My husband, who usually doesn't eat dessert, loved these. This tasty little dessert is easy to make and a nice change from the usual.

I made these for the first time last Christmas and gave them to friends and family. I had requests for more of these from almost everyone I gave them too, along with the recipe.
