I loved the ease of this recipe. Tastes great! I used parchmount paper and just lifted it out of the pan.
This was perfect for a snow day. Had all the ingredients on hand in abundance and it was in the oven in no time!
Followed the recipe exactly and used parchment paper under them made it so easy to lift from the pan. So good!
