      These were fabulous! I'm so sorry I reduced the recipe by half, as I took some to my DS's school, to share with his teacher and the school nurse. I hope they liked them as much as I do! :) They went together quick as a wink, and I put them in the fridge overnight. I only baked half of my 'log', and I got about 20, tho mine were slender, so to speak. Really looking forward to making the other half for a little get together this weekend! So glad I tried this and that you shared it, ratherbeswimmin'!
