LOVED these - ate 10 in one sitting - now that is gready I know, however they had carrots in so I figured they may be a little healthy ;-) They are best cool. I whipped them up using a hand mixer, never mind all this beating. I have never used this method before but they came up really fluffy and well blended. I was gonna gift some, but there's not enough left!
