“Many requests for the recipe came after making these for hubby's office for Xmas. There are other similiar recipes on Zaar but none are exactly made like these are. Hubby and I could not stop eating the second batch I made until they were all gone. This is from Homemade Favorites 2004, Robin Hood pamphlet.”
