Recipe by Bertha C.

I got this from a magazine several years ago. I make them each year during the autumn season. I find that I need to bake them a little longer than instructed, possibly due to our high altitude in Utah. I also use a little red/yellow food coloring in the frosting to give it an orange cast and decorate each with a few candy corns.
