“This recipe was the signature sweet treat of a neighbor, who has sadly passed on now. But we think of her every time we make this recipe! They are delicious, light bites, perfect for tea parties or other get-togethers. The yield is an approximation - I tend to cut them larger without paying attention, because they are so darn delicious!”
