"I am a transplanted NYer living in SoCal since 1983. I have really begun to miss weather and seasons. I have been a special education teacher for 27 years. I have 2 sons, ages 14 and 15 so food is a priority in our house. We have 2 cats and an extremely energetic 7 month old boxer/pit bull mix. I love to read. I have really begun to love to cook and have gotten pretty good. I enjoy this site so much and actually miss browsing when I don't have the time. My boys are both great athletes, so sports are big in our house. I am a die-hard Yankee fan as well as a fanatic Steelers fan."

    Made these for my other half to share during one of the weekly meetings he attends & they were apparently gone in no time at all! Raves & requests for copies of the recipe came back to me, so I'll be making these again, for sure! Loved the raspberry flavor, & I WAS generous with the extract! Thank you for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
