Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by my Aunt Jane.

These are super yummy! I love the crunch of the outer coating and soft innards of the eggplant. And the powdered sugar made it taste almost like an exotic pastry. I didn't put that much powdered sugar on it mainly as I decided at the last minute to serve them as a side dish at dinner. Superb! Made as a recipenap for Veg N Swap #15 tag.
