I found this recipe in the Woman's Day Cooking Encyclopedia. . .one of those buy-a-volume-a-week things from the mid-Sixties. . .but these will never be out of date.

This is my grandma's recipe, except that she rolled hers in confectioners' sugar. I made them for the first time this Christmas and they were darn good!
