This recipe comes from the kitchen of Sarah Blamires. Haven't tried it yet, but thought I'd pass it along. It sure looks yummy!

  1. Those look really yummy! I don't do much baking because then we all eat it and really who needs baked goods in there system when they already don't really watch what they eat? I hope that they turn out good for you all.
