      Wow, these steps are so easy to understand and I'm glad that you added that it would be a thick dough...I usually panic when I see that. Looking forward to making your dessert for my mom's very early calligraphy Christmas party. Where did you find this recipe, btw? UPDATE: I made them 1 1/2 days before the party and after completely cooled, I cut them and put them into a container, sealed. Mom too both to her party, but one was glass and she dropped it. So, they were left with 1/2 of them, but every bit of them were devoured. Thanks so much!

      I made these today..great recipe. But I made a few changes to make it more diabetic friendly. I used a cake mix with splenda....Pillsbury Reduced Sugar Yellow Cake Mix. Instead of canned pumpkin, I used 3 baked and mashed sweet potatoes,...and instead of the box of powdered sugar, I used 1 cup of splenda baking mix. Turned out great and I am taking them to a get together tomorrow. Thanks for posting it.
