    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    This, in a word, is AMAZING! My DS proclaimed, "I think I died and went to heaven!" I made this recipe for my 4th grader who is studying and reporting on the state of Kansas. He needed to make a food item to share with the class. Many thanks to Dee514 for helping me work out the kinks! Prep time includes chill time. NOTE: You can freeze them unbaked, and then bake them fresh and bake as needed **do not thaw first. Baking time may need to be adjusted if frozen. Handy during the holidays.
