These looked really yummy to me.. so dainty and fruity and sugary good… so I figured I’d make them for my family today.  Super simple recipe  and bakes quickly so.. sure.. why not.. Well they baked up nice and golden brown and I couldn’t wait to try them.. and the moment comes where I put the warm goodness in my mouth and all I taste is heavy eggy dough.  There’s no real flavor to it other then eggy.  The strawberry preserves we put on top were great (we made those) and the powder sugar was tasty as always.. but that’s it.  They are bland really.. maybe if you add some cinnamon or something they might be better.. but for this recipe.. it’s just ugh.. I give it 1 out of 5 stars.
