Laurie's Tip

Here is a great treat to satisfy that sweet craving without costing you too many calories.  These are great especially to serve on Valentine's Day.  You can certainly get creative with this recipe - dipping them in chocolate, making a 'sandwich' out of them (add cream in the middle with raspberries or strawberries)...the possibilites are endless.  I have kept the recipe pretty simple here.  Besides holding your oven up for a bit, these are super simple and fun to make, not to mention very cost effective!  Hope you enjoy!
