From Smucker's Taste Test in the grocery store. I made these sugar free by substituting the sugar with Splenda and the jelly with sugar free jelly. My diabetic B-I-L and all the kids, loved them! I put the prep time high because the kids helping made it take longer - this is a great recipe for the them to do! And the cook time higher simply because it is actually in between the options.
