Taking a lovely, tried and true recipe from my aunt and making them into something everyone can enjoy. Her recipe has been used countless times; however with friends having Celiac and some being vegan, I went the extra mile to make them with vegan/gf ingredients. I wasn’t sure they would work the same, but here we are trying to hold back from eating them all, and contemplating making another batch. It takes minimal time and it’s a no bake recipe as another bonus!
