I've been using this recipe as well. Don't remember where I found it.
I did tweak mine by experimenting a little.

I thought they were a bit greasy, so only used 3 tbsp butter. I also use only 1/4 c. half-n-half and 1/4 c. water to cut the fat and calories a little. I don't use soy, so I subsituted almond flour ( or just added extra flax), and I always add a few chopped nuts. I've even added a bit of pumpkin, or a bit of grated carrots. I guess the possibilities are endless!

I make these 12 at a time and eat at least 1 a day. Love 'em. They are much better cold than hot or warm.
