I doubled this recipe and made a few little changes. I used whole wheat pastry flour, and then increased the baking powder by just a dash. I used butter, as I do not use shortening or margarine for anything in order to avoid hydrogenated oil. I also used dark brown sugar to give a slighly richer flavor. Finally, I did not use a blender, and mixed everything in a bowl instead. This recipe is definitely a keeper. My family liked these and so did a group of ladies I had over.
