Delicious and easy treat. I made a few of these up for my kids and they have practically wiped them out already! I used applesauce in place of jam and the juice option (cider actually. Very tasty and fun! I will make these again as a treat since the kids enjoyed them so much! Thanks for psoting - **Made for Aussie Tag Feb 2008** UPDATE- made a half batch and realize maybe I make my filling too thick as I never paid attention to how much to add to each! I also tried rolling edges in chips this time -will post a pic this way too. Used the milk option this time and applesauce. YUM!
I used chocolate chips cookies as that was all I had on hand, these might last 1 hour in my house if I am lucky, soooo good, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
