Mrs. Ragan's Gaston County Stickies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SB61287

Found this recipe in the Myers Park Presbyterian Church cookbook, "Count Our Blessings". It is a fabulous cookbook filled with great treats but this has to be my favorite of the recipes I have tried. The recipe says serve at room temperature but even better slightly warmed. Also that this recipe has been a Ragan family tradition for 100 years.

Made the other night for an after school treat, We did enjoy these overall but thought something was missing in flavor. Made for your win in Football Pool.
