This recipe was passed down from my great grandmother. She made these during the depression. They are called unbelievable, because they do not require flour.My mother taught me to make them at an early age. Just as she had been taught. I in turn, taught my children . These have won blue ribbons in 3 states at the county fair, as well as grand champion at the state fair in two states! So far, at least five generations of our family have made them. Simple to make, and even better to eat!
