  • “Oh my gosh, these are delicious! I just wanna wolf them all down myself! They are tender – I made as directed, using pecans on half of them, and 4 ‘dashes’ of cayenne, as I like it HOT! I already shared some with a friend, I hope to make again soon, to share some more! 😀 Thanks, Derf, for sharing with me! Made for Fall PAC ’09.”
