    Can I substitute the Yogurt with sour cream do you think?

    • Ruthie says:

      Yes… yogurt will totally work too! I would probably use low-fat greek yogurt (if you have it) since it’s a little thicker consistency than regular yogurt. They’ll be delightful with any dairy substitute 🙂

      Yes… you totally can! They’ll be amazing 🙂
