I know, it sounds weird... but this is a sweet dessert with a delicate flavor of nutmeg, it's crispy on the outside, smooth and custardy on the inside. It was love at first bite for me..

These are definitely worth a try if your looking for something different. The prep time is minimal - most of it is spent in the fridge. The powdered sugar is a must! Thanks for sharing!
