Squash Balls

I made these in 1970 for my mother, she used to eat squash balls at Morrson's Cafe in Terrill,Texas and had told me a number of times how much she would love to have them again. So I tried many times before I got it right, and so glad I did, because I lost my mother to cancer in 1979. I think of her every time I make these.
