Love how I got this recipe! I bought a cookbook at an estate sale and inside was a very yellowed newspaper clipping from the Chicago Daily News and this recipe was printed on it. This recipe calls for peanut oil (which I love) but if you are making this for company or a pot luck, make sure there are no peanut allergies! I guessed the yield since there was no mention here and since I haven't made them yet. Feel free to update the recipe if you discover it is different!
