Top Review by Sydney Mike

Wonderful tasting buns, these! This was another recipe I made with the idea of sometime having on the counter at one of my monthly meetings, & believe me, they'll definitely be there this next time! Not only will they make a nice addition to my appetizer counter, but they're also great served with a hearty bowl of chili (which we did) as well as other soups! Fresh out of the oven, they were great all by themselves! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
