      Simply good. Not too sweet and easy to make and bake. I actually did not roll them out because I had to make a zillion and did not have the time. So I dropped them by rounded teaspoon and they were good...probably a litte softer than if they were rolled out, but all the flavors were still there. All the ingredients you heat up before adding the flour etc would make a great pancake, waffle or french toast syrup.
