This is an easy recipe to make with ingredients normally found in the pantry. It can be doubled as I often did when I was head cook for my church.

Delicious! These are very easy but look pretty fancy with the icing swirl. The whole family inhaled them! Used whole wheat pastry flour with great results. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
