I've never had real Beaver Tails, despite being a died in the wool Canadian. I made them today as my daughter had planned to go to Wonderland and her plans fell through. She really wanted a Beaver Tail, so I made a batch to placate her. I only had a nibble, but it did taste wonderful. She assured me that they were amazing and she wants me to make them again soon. The texture is lovely. I made the dough in my bread machine.
So... i made a half recipe. A) not so good... B) they didn't rise.
...i mean they were tasty when i put cinnamon sugar and lemon juice on, but ya... baking issues, i was confused with the instructions. I encourage you to try them and post your review.!
These were DELICIOUS! Ive never had the "real" Beaver tails so I cant compare them to the real deal, but these were soo good!!
