All was going great after I added the flour. It came to a ball really fast. I allowed it to cool for a couple minutes before adding the eggs.

As I was cooking them and rolling them into the cinnamon-sugar mixture, they kept disa...

This recipe is hard to screw up. And I don't think it was fair that one reviewer gave it 3 stars just because it wasn't cold. The recipe did say to pour it over ice. Nonetheless, I loved it. It was simple to make, healthy and very refreshing. My only complaint was that it wasn't enough! I will make double batch next time. This is a keeper!"
