MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 26, 2011

These were a lot of work, but definitely worth it. My advice is to make them a day ahead of time and heat them just prior to serving. I probably will never be able to make mine look as pretty as theirs, but they tasted good, so that was what was important.

Very good. My family loved them. I had to use a little more flour than it said, probably 5 cups total.

The only problem with this recipe is you have to hide them or make lots or they will disappear before you have a chance to serve them.
