You are welcome Susan and Stephanie, it's an old recipe. Wish I could cook sweets but you know my situation with my bad diabetic husband. You all will have to cook them for me and tell me how good they are. When we're not snowed in I can share with neighbors, family and friends. Nothing is moving and I live in the city.

Thanks Laura, I can remember having it years ago. I'm glad you enjoy it. I plan to make it when the snow clears out and I can share it with my neighbors. My husband can't have any.
