Again another Christmas treat from my Nana...hope I'm not boring anybody with these, but she was a VERY special lady in my life. She always tried to make the Holidays and family get-togethers special. This is one of my favorites as she always made some with the nuts called for, but having a grandchild highly allergic she always made some special for me so I didn't feel left out.
