Another recipe I've never seen anyting like before. I thought it would make another great addition to those goodie baskets for Christmas, so thought I'd share it. It also comes from that cookbook my mother put together for the church years ago, but there's no name next to it, so I don't know which of those great ladies it came from. Enjoy!
