Easy and yummy. I cooked on a baking stone for around 7 minutes, because that is what I had.

We loved these! So easy and delicious. I used 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white flour. They were great right from the oven and cooled, but were even better warmed up the next day. Will be making them often.
