    Oh and I forgot, I didn't use a pastry bag - just my fingers. Oops! (I don't even have a pastry bag.)

    Lillian, thank you so much for this wonderful recipe! I did a trial run for the Ugly Holiday Sweater party we hosted and they were a huge hit. One of our guests said they tasted like pizza. I made an army of them & brought them to my beau's family Christmas dinner and everyone went crazy for them! At first they thought they were too cute to eat but I got them to try them and they loved them!

    Knox is right, Lillian! You should go into the food styling business. Very clever!

    Lillian! You missed your calling, Girly! Food styling is a big biz and you could be rich! These are just lovely and you did a great job.

    I didn't know what you were talking about so I "searched ya Lillian!" and om-goodiness, these are the cutiest little guys I have ever seen. I think my kids would just fall over when they see mom made something like this. And all the ingredients are something they would eat......but not sure if I want them to eat something soo cute. Thanks Lillian, I saved the recipe and will be showing my kids, will diffently make this with them.

    Ooooo la la, these penguins are stylin'! The ones I used to make didn't have the scarf or the ranch mix, not as fancy as yours ;-) I bet kids at your party especially loved these.
