Everyone loves this! I make it for Christmas and it's very festive looking. It's great any time of the year.
Prepare ahead for next day serving. Easier to handle and more flavorful.
These were wonderful and my husband wants to know when I'm going to make them again!
I made this with regular oats, not instant and it came out fine.
cutting them into triangles looks more attractive on a fancy plate before serving
