    LibraryMan's Note:

    My family and friends expect me to bake them every year at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas, and they get very upset with me when I don't. But baking them is fun, and they taste great! The recipe was initially printed in the Dallas Morning News (mid-70s) as part of a "Junior Chef" summer program for kids.
