"Can't wait to taste. They're in the oven now. It is a good day to bake! Sub zero temps here where I live!! So far I'm looking forward to eating, the ingredients sound wonderful. Probably will be creamy! I'll chk in with the critique of the flavor later.

Yes...very creamy&moist. The honey butter tops it off!"
