My husband liked this, but we felt it was slightly doughy .. I am not sure if this is the result of my mixing method or if it is supposed to be this way .. thanks for the recipe!

This was so easy to make and very good! I halved the recipe, but wish I hadn't! Other than that, I made it exactly as directed. Thanks for a great recipe, SlyGirl!
