This recipe was given to me from a beautiful lady I met when I was a teenager, she did this delicious treat for her family very often, and from the very first day I tasted them I fell in love with its delicious sweetness and when I got married I contacted her and she shared the recipe with me. Since then I make them for my husband and my kids, I have also made them for my friends and they enjoy it very much, hope you do also. Please let me know when you try the recipe.
