Recipe by Seasoned Cook

DELICIOUS!! I have made this recipe for 30 years and it is my DH's favorite of all my dozens of goodies! They can be sprinkled with powdered sugar or coconut on top. I use Splenda in the recipe to cut down on sugar calories. An easy and quick preparation.

LOVE this recipe. I did not add the coconut but I do think that would taste great. I used walnuts and added a some craisins for holiday color. EVERYONE loved them. I will make them for many events in the future. So good!!
