My dear friend Parthenia gave me this recipe about 40 years ago when I started my recipe box. She was a great cook. I have to admit she made these more than I did. I always knew she would be baking them during the holidays so I would just wait for my share. Guilty. Back then I was afraid to make them. Not a problem now. Thanks Par!
