my husband and i tend to lean more towards chocolate brownies as a guilty snack but i tried these and they were absolutely fabulous! the only thing i changed a bit was adding extra lemon juice to the glaze. unbelievably easy recipe.
Fabulous! Easy to follow recipe and taste great. What more can you ask for? LOL
