This recipe comes from my husband's cousin, Tracie from North Dakota. She sent it to me for a family cookbook I'm assembling..and they are awesome!

These are delish! I did make a slight adjustment...I added 1 tsp cream of tartar in place of 1 tsp of baking powder. I also used my standard frosting of powdered sugar, milk, and butter but next time I'll try this frosting recipe; sounds good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
