Mummamills, I hope you've tried these by now because they are awesome!! DH and I so enjoyed this taste of summer in the depths of a wet and cold NZ winter. A quick and easy taste treat. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap July 2012.
Great combination of flavors. Loved the touch of mint. It was iffy weather-wise today so I did these on a stovetop grill pan and that worked great. Will be making these again!
