A childhood friend of my grandmothers, another little old Italian lady, (smile) passed this on to her and she passed it on to me. I love the flavor of these hermits and I've made them for friends and they're always pleasantly surprised because they are not a common treat like chocolate chip cookies or apple pie...I havent made them with the nuts, only raisins...Im sure theyre good either way!
