  3. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 1 dozen.

"I made these last night and they were amazing! I made as directed except I used regular flour because I did not have any gluten-free and I cut in butter on the topping since I did not have shortening. I was making them for a church luncheon today and after tasting one I could not keep my husband away from them! Big Yummy!!!!"

"Good but not great. The texture was perfect, loved the way these baked up, but the flavor was lacking. Needs a bit more of something, they were too bland for me."
