This recipe is at least 300 years old... (and NO... it is not one that I created in my younger years! LOL)

Way back when... foods were frequently in shortage and were time consuming to prepare. Saving crumbs could mean the difference between eating or going without.

Cooks would scrape the rolling pins and boards and gather all the crumbs after making biscuits, noodles, breads and pies. They put the scraps into jars. When they had saved enough scraps, they would use them to make Riffles. Also known as LUMPS.

Each cook developed recipes around using up these scraps.

Now we use a formal recipe just because it's fast... and good!
