I used to go to a little amish bakery in "Charm" Ohio and buy these. The Little lady who owned the franchise "Mary", gave me her recipe. I have made these many times and they are so delicious. they are "cupcake" size and good to take to potlucks and family gatherings. no need to worry about utensils and etc...
