“This comes from the November 2006 issue of Woman's Day magazine. Cook time is actually chill time. These are pretty little desserts with only 4 ingredients and 3 steps! Some other options are to add 1 tablespoon of finely grated orange zest, 2 tablespoons of minced candied ginger, or even a tablespoon of cranberry vodka or orange liquer.”
