These dry but oh-so-tasty delights are a holiday treat. It's been several years since I made these because I lost the recipe yet the family still begs for them. Now that I'm packing for a major downsizing move, it has been found and will be a Thanksgiving surprise. I suspect that the family will demand them for Christmas, too! Too bad that by Christmas the kitchen will be boxed for the January 1st move!
