    Wonderful new twist on an old favorite of ours, & I thoroughly enjoyed making these great treats! I shared a few of them with a neighbor couple, but the majority of them were devoured right here at home by the 2 of us! Your recipe is a great keeper, & I'll be making these again & again, I just know it! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
