    I just made this recipe today and cannot rave enough about how good it tastes! Sweet and a bit crispy, I had trouble putting the batch away instead of eating it. My only complaint is that the calorie count may be a little off; I measured everything I used and came up with 3458 calories, which is 2 - 3/19/09
