      Julie, Yes. Yes. I love these and ur right just change them up a bit and it’s a new flavor.. We constantly have guests at our home and I love these cause I can prep everything in advance and put it together real quick and bake if guests come late or for breakfast. Looks pretty, tastes good and super fast:).:)..
