MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2014

Although these are supposed to be an appetizer, I served them for our breakfast this morning, along with eggs and fruit. They're absolutely delicious! Since it's just the two of us, I'm going to put a few of them in the freezer so my husband and I can enjoy them at a later date. I will definitely make these again!

Fun to make. More bready than I thought they'd be but the flavor was really nice. Husband loved.
