MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 10, 2014

These are terrific. This is the second time I made them for coffee hour after church and they are completely gone within twenty minutes and I made two batches.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2011

Very light and wonderful. I like that they are not super sweet. I make these often because I always have these ingredients on hand.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2011

Not super-sweet, pairs great with an omelette and fruit for breakfast or as an after-school snack.
