Notes

I found this receipe in the cookbook from my home town Humansville, Mo. I started making these as a treat and with 9 grandchildren and some that are nearly grown it has been well tested. I have made double batches of these and they disappear fast. I have always loved to cook. Hope you enjoy these as much as my friends and family do.

A dash of local for every season
