This recipe originally comes from a 1950's issue of Family Circle. They are delightfully tasty, crunchy little morsels I'm sure you will enjoy and so very easy to make. I have been making them on and off for my family since the early 1960's. I hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.

This is the very same recipe I have in a post WWII cookbook from a time when things like butter and flour were rationed.
