These were made both as a trial run to see how they'd turn out & also to share at one of the weekly gatherings we attend! Passed with flying colors on both counts! I did follow the recipe right on down, but used just a regular round cutter this time! Will be making these again during the end-of-year holidays, though, & then I'll get fancy! Many thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
