“This recipe has been in my family for 20+ years. I got it from my Aunt Pearl who made them up until the time she finally quit cooking at age 98. She lived to be 101 years old and would call me and ask me to make a batch of these for her about once a month. Every time I make a batch of them, it reminds me so much of her that it brings tears to my eyes.”
