    these look really yummy. are these the ones you made up for the Quaker contest a while back? if not, where did you get the recipe? just curious.

    These are similar, but a bit different. One main thing is that these use brown butter and not Blue Bonnet Margarine. However, you could actually make these with margarine and they’d still taste good.
