Don't we all just love quick bites to pack off to kid's lunches, office tiffins, morning breakfasts and evening snacks, a no fuss, minimal work, all-in-one solution...these buns are exactly that a delicious option for all the busy bees, or maybe I did not want to bake buns and then figure out a filling for them, well so I thought let's bake the filling right into it!, Ingenuity or plain laziness, it's hard to say, well you enjoy them while I figure it out!!!
