I can't help it...I love salt and sugar together and this recipe is born of that need. I love looking at little grains of salt on top of something I know will be sweet...pretty and delicious.
Great for school lunch boxes, as a morning treat with coffee, instead of breakfast, (did I say that?) or right after they are removed from the oven, before you bake the next batch! Enjoy!
