These are not exactly healthy but they are a nice treat!  I make them with blueberries and sprinkle sugar on top.  I have also made them with craisins and added about a tablespoon of orange peel.  They go over well for tea parties or when you have company over.  They also freeze really well.  I make them in all kinds of sizes as well – smaller for tea parties, bigger for breakfast.

    Ooh, sounds tasty! I just stocked up on some Craisins and have some orange peel in the freezer … I’ll have to give them a try this weekend w/the in-laws :)

    This is Kate’s husband, Matt. I actually made this recipe this weekend with the craisins and orange peel… it was AWESOME! Took longer than 15 mins to cook, but so worth it!

    Isn’t it true that any recipe that starts with “Grandma” is not healthy :)

    This is a great recipe :)
