This recipe came from my great grandma who gave it to my gradma and then to my mom and now I use it. People always ask for the recipe when I make it and I only give it out because it is that good! I remember baking with my grandma and my mom when I was younger and I am not fortunate enough to have any kids so when my nieces and nephews come over thats the first thing they ask.. "what are we baking today?"
This recipe is easy to make and a crowd pleaser. It is easy to double or triple the batch and it takes no time at all to make. Food helps connect families and this is a good holiday recipe to start with!
