Great little recipe. Don't forget to add the melted butter in! I used slightly less butter and white whole wheat flour. Simple, tasty. I'm from Mississippi, so I was attracted to the recipe (even though I think these are from the mid-west part of the Valley...I'll still claim them!)

Wonderful recipe- My children even liked these! We added blueberries which gave them some added flavor and put either syrup or applesauce on them! Yum!
