After you eat and entire plate of these because they’re “good for you,” and may even help with your milk supply, please do not come hunting for me. These things are incredibly addictive and oh-so-yummy. The first batch I made with the intentions of freezing are already gone. So, I made a second batch last night and left a few out for the hubs and me (and Sully). The rest are safely in the freezer and will stay there until Baby Dos arrives. I found the recipe here. They are super easy to make, always smell yummy, and look pretty good too. Enjoy!
