Recipe by mommyoffour

My grandmother made these every holiday season. I wasn't too fond of them as a child but as I got older they got better and better. Now, I try to make them every holiday season too. They do have alot of ingredients but they are so worth it. I sometimes think these are the reason hubby married me....LOL.
