      This is a wonderful recipe! I loved that the dough was so stiff and easy to work. This is just what I was looking for, to re-create my Grandmother's lost recipe Delicious. Thank you for posting this

      These were wonderful little morsels of bite sized goodness! My family really enjoyed these, made them yesterday and sadly today, they're already gone. Made for ZWT 7 Count Dracula and his Hot Bites.
