I have been looking for this recipe! I lost my copy. These are SO delicious! I used to make them often, and they were everyone's favorite. I've seen other versions, but they have too much flour. Now I can make them again! Thanks so much for sharing!

My mother made these every year around the Christmas holidays. I found your recipe and made them as appetizers for Christmas lunch. They are exactly as I remembered!

OUTSTANDING! I have made these for years. This recipe was passed down to me by my husband's grandmother. I make over 100 of these great appetizers over the holidays. I request by friends and family.
