these are super exciting little loves. The only thing I didn't like is the size of the filling - the recipe would be better with 1/2 of the mixture and it would also save up some money. I also baked them for 37 minutes only with no egg wash and they came out beautiful. It's like a miracle. I think I will stop buying the ones in the freezer section"
