  5. I made these a couple weeks ago and my husband is already asking me to make them again. They were so good!! Mine were pretty thick and the time had to be adjusted for my oven's preferences (she is a bit temperamental sometimes, but poor Helga is getting old, so I just go with it), but the finished product was wonderful!!
    Thanks for the new addition to my rotation!
