This recipe comes from my Mom. Sort of in honor of Mother's Day...that and I had a craving for these last week. As mentioned before, she made me this wonderful recipe box. When making the box, my Mom came across this recipe and I think it was a good reminder to her as well, as I don't remember her ever making these prior to her making the recipe box.
And the best thing is, these don't have any calories!
Oops, I forgot, that's only in my world....but they are absolutely delicious and worth it!
