I remember my great grandmother making these when I would visit her in Richmond, California with my grandmother.... She would have a plate of these on the table as soon as we got to her house. She taught me to make these, and I had lost the recipe. My grandmother would make them for me and the rest of my family....When she passed, I lost the recipe. Luckily my aunt in California had a church cookbook with my grandmother's recipe for these. My aunt sent me the recipe, and to this day, I make these. I entered then on the fair and too home 2nd place, then 1st place in 2013 at the local fair...
