      Family and guests alike, all loved it; the few pieces that remained uneaten were eaten the following day and they tasted even better - this could be one of those recipes where the taste and texture of the final product is enriched with time.
      I didnt add nuts bec I wasnt sure if our guests suffered from a nut allergy, and $it turned out just fine; though I would've loved the crunchiness of nuts, such as almonds, which are our favourite. Will add nuts next time.

      Thank you for posting this recipe. It was my grandmother's favourite Christmas snack and my Gramps accidentally threw it out along with the Deed to the house...: ) I have been looking for it for _years_. I must have come from an old cookbook, long ago, as obviously, someone else has the recipe! That said, I couldn't get the whites to whip completely (took that mixer back!) and the oven wasn't working right, and it came out a bit doughy, but it still turned out great considering the situation. The first bite is pretty simple, but these really grow on you...I've come to love them over the years...thanks again!
