This is a little different than other recipes of the same name. The recipe was demonstrated on a cooking segment of our local news station in the Pacific Northwest market. The amounts weren't given, so I had to guess when I made these, so the amounts are what worked best for me. So feel free to adjust the ingredients to what works best for you. These can be made as an appetizer for Thanksgiving Day, or it can be made later as a quick snack to use up leftover turkey and cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving dinner.
