LOL don't leave the oven on preheat all night.
I bet these would be good with butterscotch chips!

Thank you for your recipes. One of the girls at work has to eat gluten free and I hate not bring stuff for her too... now I can :)

I make these for my husband and substitute Splenda for the sugar since he is diabetic. These are his absolute favorite. Only problem is my grandaughter loves them too! She has arleady asked me to make these for her birthday instead of a cake. Great Recipe, thanks.
