  8. Unfortunately they turned into a light brown as I made them (10 minutes 300 degrees I wonder why) but they are very delicious, easy and not too sweet. I made them for Christmas

    1. Green Eyed Soul I’m glad they were delicious, as for the color usually ovens are different probably your oven is a bit stronger so may be next time try them 280 degrees for 8 min and keep checking. but again as long as they taste good i usually don’t care what color they turn out 😁
