READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sara 76

This recipe comes from the "Gone With The Wind Cook Book - Famous Southern Cooking Recipes". There is a note in the foreward which I love: "Gone With The Wind told of a style of living. as well as a romantic drama, A way of living, playing, and eating that thrilled us all."

DELICIOUS! We loved these. They were very easy to make. For a more savory flavor, I would add pepper or jalepenos. As they are, they are fairly sweet. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
