Top Review by Wolfangel

I made these awhile ago and plan on making them again, just couldn't figure out where to review them at, but now I found it and am leaving my opinion! LOL These went over really well with my children and myself I left the pecans out of it though because I'm not real fond of nuts. This gave me a new way to serve ham to my family and they all thought it was marvelous, thanks for sharing!
