Before I share this recipe with you, I want to give a shout out to the wonderfully talented Ashton from Something Swanky that I met while attending Online BlogCon. She is the artist behind my new blog design. I have been wanting a face-lift for my blog for a while now, but didn't have the know how to do it myself. So I contacted Ashton and told her what I wanted and she brought my ideas to life. Now every time I click on my page, I have a huge smile on my face. If you are looking for your own blog face-lift, check out her Etsy shop here. She has great prices, is very friendly, and does a fabulous job.
Oh yeah, just let the glaze drip off the sides. Tell me this doesn't make you drool right now.
I sprinkled a little cinnamon sugar on top to finish them off. I didn't have any granulated sugar left, so I used brown sugar. I think I like it better for a topping because it is not so gritty.
