My Mother, Mary Alice, made up this recipe when she was in her 80's! She always made an extra batch when she knew I was coming to visit or when she visited me, because she knew how much I liked them. She lived to be 96 years old. I still make them for breakfast...especially when the weather changes to cool mornings at the beginning of fall in the South.
