    So good! Mix together 3-49 of a thing of lukewarm butter and 4-5 tablespoons honey. Mash together well, and drizzle over. No need of butter(or honey.)

    Have you ever frozen these? I am due with baby #2 in two weeks and I am looking for easy breakfast ideas to freeze.

      Hi Laurie!
      I prefer using the dough right away, but you can indeed freeze them for later use.

      Congrats on the new addition to the family soon! :)
