Found the recipe in a old cookbook. Did a little tweaking (orgininal called for shortening instead of butter) and now it really does taste just like the real thing. So quick and easy to make. My daughter LOVES them. I put them in a mini muffin pan with liners so they are so easy to pack for lunches or snacks.
