    I found this recipe today for my step-dad who is a diabetic. I prepared these in under 10 minutes, cooked them in under 5, and ate them in under 2! LOL! These were really good. We ate them while enjoying the football game. I served a veggie tray and chips with these and we all raved about them! - 11/23/08

    I may have the same cookbook! I love this recipe! My recipe calls for 1 tsp of powdered sugar and low-sugar cranberry-raspberry jam (optional), but I rarely use them. Whenever I crave the FATTENING Bennigans version, I make these and it satisfies! =) - 4/27/09
