Also a tradition in my family, and they are delicious. However, this recipe is showing up as "lighter fare" and "low in fat." They ARE deep fried, so anyone who tries the recipe should know that they are most definitely not low fat. They make a fantastic treat, especially during the holidays, but will never qualify as health food. :)
This is one of my mom's famous recipes she's been making every Christmas for as long as I can remember. They are a great treat to have. Mmm Mmm Good!!
