Nana Rose's Butter Fingers

Ceree Morris


This recipe comes from my grandmother. She started making these at Christmas time back in 1951. this recipe has been handed down from generation to generation. It is also very simple and not expensive to make. My grandmother had 9 children, so any recipe that was not expensive to make was a blessing.
