Okay, okay-----I admit it. This recipe is better than the one my "friend??" wouldn't give me because of her vow of secrecy. Now I say: "nyeh, nyeh, nyeh, nyeh, nyeh!!!(doubled)" I made them last weekend, and they were absolutely vundebar (or vendebah, as they say in New England!). Every time I make them from now on, which will be often, I'll raise a glass of some of that white wine to you. Thanks again, Malinda. Stuffies forever!
