These were great. I made them for a small family gatering and everyone went home with the recipe.

Awesome! I had this recipe a long time ago and lost it. I was so thrilled to find it again. These were just as good as I remembered and I got rave reviews when I made them. I bake ALL THE TIME, and one of my friends said it is his favorite thing I've ever made!!!
