My Gwumpkies

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


I make so many of these, I had to finally give my family my recipe. When I make them which is always for St. Patty's Day and Easter I swear my family and friends can smell them I was making so many I was up to my elbows. So I broke down and shared my recipe so we had some to eat! Hope You enjoy!
