“I got this recipe from an OLD "Pillsbury Kitchens' Family Cookbook". I have been using this recipe since I was in High School, so that should tell you how EASY they are to put together and they are such a hit! You can do anything with them. Add fruits for a yummy breakfast dish, chicken and cheeses for a dinner dish (VERY good), or sweet fillings and powdered sugar for a dessert.”
