    Debber's Note:

    Altho' a bit putzy to make, they are definitely worth the effort! The burst of citrus is a surprise; change the extract and have a whole 'nuther flavor. Credit goes to Reiman's *Best of Country Cooking 2003* for the original recipe. HEADS-UP: Cooking time includes CHILLING time.
