I got this recipe from my sister in 1994 and loved it so much that I entered it in the Holiday Cooking Contest and won Cullman County's Best Cook Award the same year. I have been making this for the holidays ever since. It also won me a Blue Ribbon at the County Fair this year!!All my family love this tasty dessert and it's wonderful to carry to covered dish meals.

5When done, flip onto a towel that has been well sprinkled with powdered sugar, roll up and let cool.
