Everyone has their own version of this recipe...

I made a batch to take to work today...

Oh boy, my favorite! Your recipe is the same as mine I think! Haven't made them in a few years. Not eating sugar now so I'll just have to look at the picture and dream!

Hugs, Lori

THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING!! These are one of my all time favorites - and yes, there are tons of recipes out there, but none I've tried are the ones everyone else makes that I so love. This sounds like it just might be it! Yippee!! ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
