Neighbors happened to drop in the first time I made these...they loved them! I say my hobby's crafting. Actually, though, it's helping my husband with ranch work and running after the kids. We have four of them, from 13 to 9.

I have been making this recipe for years and years. It is actually from an old Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook from 1981. I don't change anything - love it just the way it is.
