This is a very rich candy that my mother-in-law made at Christmas. Nell had eight children, worked from her home as a "pie baker" for a greek resturant in Elwood, Indian. Not only could she bake pies, but cooking/baking was her nitch. Nell would give-a-way rich delicious baked goods for gifts to bring delight to other families. Nell, age 83, passed away from Breast cancer in 2001. Baking her recipes keeps a fond memory of a fantastic cook alive.
