  1. These are so delicious! A dear lady gave me this recipe 35 years ago, but I hadn’t made them in many years, until a week ago. They are so addicting! I just took a whole pound out of the oven! I’m giving them for gifts, along with some Christmas cookies.

    1. Hi, Kathy! I’m so glad you like them! And I’m so happy they brought back wonderful memories! They are among our favorites as well. We always keep some on hand.
