i used to make these for my daughter when she was in kindergarten. I lost the recipe i n my many moves since then. She is now going to be 30 years old. I am glad I finally found the recipe again. I will be surprising her with then on her birthday. She has always asked me what I could still make them but I did not have the recipe. I want to thank you so much for making it available

I made these for my daughters kinder class. They are sooo cute and much easier than I had anticipated. They tasted great without being too sweet. I made little flower sandwiches to go with them and it looks very cute. I know the kiddos will love them! This recipe is definitely a keeper!

These were adorable after they were made, and I too had trouble with the wings breaking so I used a tiny screwdriver to make a slight hole then pushed it back together after I got my almond slivers in.They were a hit with my grandkids. Thanks so much Darlene
