I got this recipe from a friend who lived in Middlesboro, KY. She gave it to me about 15 years ago and said it had been handed down to her from her Great Grandmother.

I've been looking for this recipe for so long and am so glad to have found it. My mom used to make these during the holidays and they were always one of my favorites. They do tend to crumble a bit, but are still delicious!
