Delicious! But my consistency came sticky and couldn’t form them into balls like you said. I had to spoon them onto the tray which didn’t result in perfect round shapes like yours. Taste was amazing though!


Response from The Heavenly Bakes

So glad you liked them! Always wet your hands before forming into balls, that always helps me when the batter is too sticky!
