    Family favorite I have made for years. Super simple, uses pantry staples and doubles beautifully. These are great for last minute potlucks and when kids say "Oh yeah-I'm supposed to bring something for class/event tomorrow morning!" (At 9 p.m.) Thank you, Jane, for this recipe!

    My kids and I really enjoy this quick-to-make treat. Sometimes I add a dash or two of cinnamon.
