Texas Tumbleweeds

Tumbleweeds blow across the roads in some parts of Texas, and I think these cute stacks look like them. I've been making these sweets with my sister for years. —Karen Lemay, Seabrook, Texas

      I made these for a children's birthday party in August, and they were a hit with the adults, as well! I then made several batches for a church fundraiser in October and a bake sale -- easy, fast recipe, and very popular!
