I made these for my sons multi-cultural lunch at school. All the kids loved them and they were very easy to make. Lightly crisp and sweet on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. I did add a little extra cinnamon and sugar before I folded in the egg whites because I thought the dough should be sweeter. Read More
