      Don't make this! I thought the ingredients looked a little off but made it anyway. It turned into a greasy disaster! I now found the same recipe on line and the ingredients say 1 3/4 cups flour not 3/4 cup flour as is shown on this recipe. Well, no time to bake another as my picnic is in an hour. I will have to pick up something at the grocery store.
