Hermits My Favorite Recipe

By Carol Junkins CarolAJ


So good for ya ! Love hermits, had many different recipes for them and this is the best one I have found.

Love the wonderful aroma that fills the house while cooking them. My daughter made these up tonight ~

This one came from a classmate of my husband, his wife had brought them over to us when we invited them for dinner one night! Had to have the recipe.
