Top Review by Gingernut

I gave it 3 stars because "I liked it" but didn't love it. I made it exactly as written, except I didn't cook them anywhere near 40 minutes. It was more like 30, and I still think they were dry and overcooked. Next time I will take them out at more like 25 minutes, and/or turn the temperature down a bit. It was a very simple recipe, so would use it again for a quick something sweet.
