MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2009

When I was a little girl we had these sometimes as a snack at school. I LOVED them. I've tried for years to find a recipe for them but couldn't until now. I've made them for my family and they love them also. Thank you so much. Donna Lefurgey, Chino Valley, Arizona
