Rated 5 out of 5 by Wifey from These are delicious and customizable! I’m loving how easily my 8yr old son and I threw these together using our Vitamix! Then my darling 4yr old daughter helped me roll these in the pecans and press each one with her little fingers. My college age nieces and friend came over and devoured these. We served them unfilled and set out a variety of jams so everyone could try an assortment of flavors. We all agreed they were excellent unfilled. (We did mix in PUMPKIN PIE SPICE with the ingredients.)
