This is very straightforward to make and tasted lovely!
These were delicious!! My 3 year old devoured it, and keeps asking for more! I used 1 c. all purpose flour and 1 c. ww flour, and they tasted wonderful! When they were baking, my house smelled like one of those really nice apple cinnamon candles, I will make these again, made for Kid Friendly tag game Jan 2009. Thanks Lainey!
