Recipe by heather in Ont,

My mother gave me this recipe over 25 years ago. I thought I had better post it before I lose the worn out piece of paper it's written on.

Emm so wish you could smell them. What a nice surprise for kids to come home to smelling them coming right out of the oven. Excellent recipe.
