“This is an old family recipe. My Great Aunt owned a liquor store and she always made these at Christmas time. Every year now, since I started making them, all my friends and co-workers always request these for the holidays. They are sooo good! IMPORTANT: You MUST use the Creamed Sherry in the recipe or they will NOT turn out! Believe me, I have tried and the others turn out sticky. Also, it is best to make on a dry, cool/cold day!”
