These are exceptionally light and fluffy and can be doubled, tripled, etc. with the same results.

This is a tried and true recipe and deserves all five stars. I added some dried dill weed to mixture. The only thing I do different is that I whip my eggs and oil to a foam first. That ensures the fluffy texture and gives me more ball....14 in all.
