This recipe belonged to my husband's first wife, who made them every Christmas for family and friends. After she died, my husband and I married in 1994 and I began making them. They are wonderful anytime, but especially during the holidays. My family loves them, and I have even made them for my husband's late wife's mother who is 91 years old.
