I'm only giving one star because at least they tasted good. Yes, simple ingredients, relatively easy to make, but uuuuuuggly. I only baked for 9 minutes because the edges were starting to crisp up so bad - I won't be able to take these with me they look so unappetizing. Very hard to remove off the pan (I didn't give them a chance to cool on the pan because I would have never been able to get them off) AND I had greased my pan thoroughly. Too bad about these, because they're so tasty.
