    Can you make the mixture and keep it refrigerated for a week before filling the cups?

    • Lauren — November 25th, 2014 @ 6:45 pm

      Maybe not a week, but definitely 3-4 days would be fine.

    These look absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to make them! (And after the amazing success of your Blueberry Almond Scones, I’m pretty sure my audience will appreciate them too!)

    Seriously, these are amazing. I had to make a second batch because my family ate them all before I even put the candy canes on.
