I grew up with this receipe. I use less sugar then is called for. You can eat them straight from the freezer.
Like others,my mother made these when we were young. Every rainy day she made sure we had a special school snack. Luckily for us she had a 5 roses cookbook! Well she's in her 80's now & it's raining so I'd best be cooking! Like all good traditions I have shared this delicious recipe (and many others) with my daughters. 5 roses has put many a smile upon many families faces. On taste you'll know why ? Thanks for sharing this recipe, but more importantly thanks Mom!
excellent goodie!!! Easy and delicious
