This recipe entered our family cookbook via Southern Living. The boys love these. When their friends ask me to give the recipe to their moms, then you know it’s a keeper! You can either put them in a cake pan. If you do so, cut them as you would a cake after you pat them in before you cook (line with wax paper). Typically, I use a large melon ball scoop to make them bite size! Starbucks should use this recipe!
