My mother got this from a friend many years ago. Should be similar to what you're looking for. It's delicious.

I am not a desset person but this recipe tempted me and I am glad that it did. I cut the recipe in half, used butter instead of margerine and increased the cinnamon to 1 1/2 tsp. I did not glaze it either. It is a 5 star recipe but with the changes I made to it to suit my taste I rated it Four stars

My mom's recipe! LOL! Seriously, my mother and I were just talking about this great recipe. It is in a cookbook that is at least 40 years old. Hers is very slightly different-she uses lard instead of margarine, adds 1 tablespoon sugar to the pastry, and omits the salt in the filling. She also varies the sugar in filling-usually reduces it to 3/4 cup. Thank you for sharing this.

Fabulous! Just like the ones we used to get at the corner bakery when we were children! Same texture, same heavenly taste! I have been in search of a recipe this good for a long time! I did use butter rater than margerine in the dough and I did add a little real butter to the glaze! They were easy but took some time to make; it was all worth it in the end! WOW! Thanks for posting this one!!
