“Excellent Christmas recipe. I have made these every year since 1992 when I found the recipe in BC Woman to Woman Magazine it was credited to Mrs M.H. Wilkinson. I have not changed anything in the recipe it is excellent the way it is. For variety add a 1/2 tsp Almond extract orfresh ground nutmeg or finely grated orange peel. Try the original first tho you won't be disappointed”
