The first time I went to Michigan and met my husbands family, they made these for me. What a great way to get to know someone and be put at ease, is to bring them into your kitchen. That was 35 years ago and have been making them for Christmas every year. My family has a tradition of making as many as we can on Christmas Eve and giving them to family and friends.
