Good Monday to you! Hope you all had a nice holiday. I know that if I ever see another piece of candy again I may vomit, but other than that, it was a good weekend! Got the house all clean and sparkly, got the backyard looking good again (there was quite an assortment of big plastic toys out there that Jesse had grown out of or lost interest in that finally made their way to Goodwill), and I finished a couple good books. I'd say the weekend was a success!
Now these...if you have children, whether they're 3 or 23, you need to make these for them. I knew as soon as I saw this recipe that these were gonna be a hit, and they certainly did not disappoint. Jesse wolfed down three, I ate another three, and because Daddy-O was too slow, he only got two :)
These are super simple to put together, even on a weekday. Most of us probably already have all the ingredients in our kitchens right now. I thought about omitting the glaze, but since I had everything I needed for it I just decided to make it. Trust me, you want the glaze. You don't HAVE to have it, but I was definitely gad it was there. This has absolutely become a keeper and something that I will be making often (I've already made it twice now). So glad I found it. What did we do before Pinterest, I wonder? Hmmmm...
Ok guys, have a great week!
