I used to make these when I was a kid from the Peanuts Cookbook I got through scholastic books- remember you'd pick the books, pay for it (parents had to write a check) and then weeks later they would show up? These were one of the first things I baked by myself. They are really tasty too! I increased the lemon juice a bit and added lemon zest too. Enjoy!
