I did the conversions the best I could. It worked out pretty well. I had to cook it a little longer than what it says but I didn't know the proper size pan. It was a good recipe. Thanks!

These are tasty, but a bit on the dry side. They worked great with a scoop of no sugar added ice cream, though. I baked them 20 minutes, and will cut that down next time to 15. I skipped the dusting of sugar.
