I have baked these many times because they are so darn good! I make many batches and give them away as gifts on birthdays and holidays and I can tell you they are excellent with coffee,cold milk or my favorite with hot tea. My 3 sons love them.

I add a touch a cinnamon to mine. Then I make a batch with white chocolate to them and a batch without.
