Recipe by queenbeatrice
I got this recipe from the little Italian lady across the street, the same one that sends my hubby home with all sorts of lovely treats after he has plowed her driveway in the winter. He usually comes back half in the bag and toting treats. lol. Gotta love Rosa :) I asked for the recipe for this one because it is not overly sweet, a nice afternoon snack.

- 5 eggs
