Meet the Cook: As soon as I was old enough to stand on a chair, I started cooking. This recipe came from my sister-in-law. It's a favorite at our large family gatherings. Our five children are grown. My husband and I have six grandchildren. -Julia Quintrell, Sumerco, West Virginia

"Made these this weekend with some apples I was given. Very tasty, easy to make and not overly sweet. Would make a good dessert to make if you pack lunches."
