When I worked at this other cafe in HMB, someone asked if I knew how to make these. I had never heard of them before and totally forgot about them until I saw your post. I will be trying them for sure now; thanks! Luisaluisascatering in San Carlos loved it
My family loved these. After I made them, they were all gone in less than a day. My family was asking for more of them within a couple of weeks. This recipe is definitely a keeper.Cookie_Momster in Deep in the Heart-a loved it
This is exactly like the authentic City of Nanaimo's recipe. Perfect! My favorite dessert growing up! As a former Nanaimo resident, I highly recommend it. Perfect for Christmas time, and they freeze well too :)Cosmicmother in Canada loved it
