These little goodies are a great hostesse gift, Christmas gift or any time that you may need an adult gift. We southerners know that a homemade gift is always the best kind of gift there is! I can't not take credit for this recipe, it is from "Home for the Holidays" 1989 and I've been making them ever since. They are not cooked so adults only!
