  5. That’s so funny! I made these on Sunday for a baby shower and now you are posting! I serve them with fruit salsa!
    Cut up 3 green apples, raspberries, kiwi and blueberries, add some jam of your choice (3tb), and sugar (about 2tb brown sugar) mix together and it makes the perfect addition!

    These are one of my favorite summer party treats…I always serve them with fruit salsa (the left overs are often served with ice cream…)

    I found a trick that makes them really easy to make…I spray them with cooking spray, cut them with a pizza cutter into quarters, and them shake them in a zipper bag full of cinnamon/sugar mix. Bake them until they are browned and crisp. Yum!
