    Made these for my mother in law. They were great. Cut them into smaller serves as they are sweet

    Made these yesterday for a luncheon and served them warm for dessert with icecream. Everyone enjoyed them. They were a bit sweet so I'd probably reduce the sugar next time. Thank you for the recipe.
