"I hadn't had these in years until a friend of mine gave this to me. It's a pretty old recipe and you just don't see it much in cook books any more. They are super easy to make and so good to eat. These are good anytime of the year! You can add dry fruits too if you like or anything you think you would like. Time does not include cooling. "
