Notes

My grandmother made them from scratch every single day. She didn't have a recipe so one day I had her put the handfuls and pinches of what she was putting in her bowl into measuring cups and spoons first, to her delight. She thought we were weak for having to measure. This recipe has served me and the other "weak ones" in our familia well over the years.
