These are quick, easy and delicious. They look like you really slaved in the kitchen (I won't tell if you won't). While looking at our local television news station's website, I discovered a whole section with Mr. Foods recipes! He noted that Strawberry jam or orange marmalade work well too. Times do not include chilling time.
