These are the perfect sweet & sour! Most of the time you will have all the ingredients on hand, making them a good go-to when you have a dessert emergency!

Once cut they are a bit crumbly & don't look super pretty on the plate, but no one seems to care! I found these years ago in an old Pillsbury baking book.
