    I made these and shared them with my family and office. They said they were better than Potbelly's. I used real butter instead of the margarine.

    I'm making these as I type...... They're in the oven right now and it smells great. I also used real butter. Just gives so much more "Down-home" flavor to anything that calls for margarine. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Can't wait to eat one.
