Everyone really liked the taste of these and I liked that I could make them ahead. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars was because the texture was a little odd.

Tried these as a possibility for Thanksgiving because they can be made ahead of time. It worked beautiful and the flavor was WONDERFUL. I am using these for Thanksgiving.
