I can tell you that these puppies went fast during my recipe taste and test runs. They are best served warm so if you’re taking them to a party, go ahead and pre make them to the finish point and then simply reheat for a few minutes in the oven right before serving. These are perfect for lazy Sunday mornings or to bring to any potluck dinner.
