Mine were not as pretty as these, but the taste was spot on!!! My husband liked them so much, I will have time to learn to make them prettier next time!

I doubled the recipe but still baked in two separate batches. So EASY and so DELICIOUS! I did cook each batch (gas oven) for 27 minutes at 350, turning the pan around at 15 minutes. At 20 min, they were still quite soft. Other than a difference in timing, the recipe was spot on and I have a new favorite to make as snacks and to take to parties!
