"I used to make these all the time because I could never find them freshly made. This recipe comes from a very old Italian cookbook that was given to me by my Mother. You can make as thin or as thick as you like, or even roll in poppy or sesame seeds, but the cooking time will vary. I am going to start making these again as we used to love these."
