“I used to call these Hanky Pankies (why is beyond me!). After I made them at my Super Bowl party the first time the Bears won many years ago, it's been a tradition every Super Bowl since. (7/5/07...Note: These are supposed to be served hot and kept warm, if possible. During the holidays I make a double batch and freeze them in large Ziplock bags with layers of wax paper or foil between each layer. Then you have a no-fuss appetizer when people pop by that you don't have to pry apart when you only want to bake a portion of them!)”
