These were sooo delicious. My mom actually made them for us the morning after Thanksgiving. She is a much better baker than I will ever be. But I got to taste them. They had a moist texture and were ever so slightly crusty on the outside. We enjoyed them with butter and honey. Thanks Jan, for sharing your recipe.
