  1. Glen say's these are the "best dessert" ever! Caution, do not eat these while could run into a tree and knock your teeth out.

    p.s. Amber you need to make these again for Glen to redeem yourself. ;)

  2. Ok, I made it and it was delicious!!! The first day I thought the filling was too sweet/too much and not enough bread...but the next morning it was perfect! So maybe make it a day before and keep it refrigerated.
