This is the only way I will eat pickles! These tasty litle morsels are said to have originated at The Hollywood Cafe in Tunica, Mississippi. This recipe is from "The Glory of Southern Cooking" by James Villas.

These are perfect for eating while sitting under the shade on a hot day. They were quick and easy to make, and everyone enjoyed them. I only have two things to say, though: 1, next time I'll use more than 4 pickles, as I had half a bowl of batter left. 2, don't make these on a 95 degree day! My kitchen was sweltering by the time I was done with these. Thank you for the recipe, I will be using it again. :D
