These are so easy to make and so very delicious. I mentioned that I found this recipe in the Christmas dessert section of one of my cookbooks. I think it fits the holidays just perfectly! You will be sure to get many, many compliments.
I've made them for a girls night out...a party at my former job and just for us here at home. It is so good...beyond words good!
I use a slightly larger pan to bake them in because I like them a little thinner.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you enjoyed it. And I can't wait to read all of your delicious recipes! See more great ideas at Beverly's Pink Saturday post!!
