"I did not care for these at all. I don't know what the problem was but I was very disappointed and ended up dumping them all down the garbage disposal."

"I made these for a Christmas Eve get together and they were the hit of the party! One person even said that they were the favorite out of all of the recipes I had ever made. I prepared the filling the day before and let set in the fridge overnight. Would definitely make again!!"
