These are GREAT! I put a dab of ganache on top while they were still warm. Everyone LOVED them. Next time I will make a double batch. I did have to bake them longer, just watch them until they start to brown. All ovens are different.
This dessert has been missing for a while, I guess it was thought to be too old fashion. Lo ve them, After they are cool dip the bottom into some melted chocolate and place on wax paper. Just a litte added taste. Yum!
Easy and delicious.
