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!

I have been searching for this recipe for a long time. They bring me back to my elementary school days (way back!!!!). My family scarfed them right up. Did not frost though but I am sure it's delicious. Thanks so much.

These are very yummy. The family especially liked the creamy frosting. I can see why you had to double the recipe for church because they didn't last long at my house. Thanks for a tasty recipe.
