Recipe by Pellerin

Give this festive gift in a 1 qt. canning jar as part of a Christmas basket, along with a can of good pumpkin, some little applesauce containers, and a bottle of apple cider vinegar, and some instructions. Don't forget to make one for yourself! What a treat!

These were very good! We have to substitute rice milk for regular milk which in turn we had to add more flour (not poster's fault at all). I do wish they were a little sweeter on their own (since I don't like syrup) but the kids gobbled them up regardless! Next time I'll just pump up the sweetness slightly and we'll have it down perfect. Thank you for the recipe!
