Recipe by Alison J.

My mother made these for my sister and I when we were small. We used to get to flatten them out - and lick the bowl, of course... Ah, nostalgia!

This was outstanding. Nothing fancy, no fuss, just fast and so very good. People always seem to want to reinvent the wheel, when it works just fine the way it is. Most times the simple way is the best way, just like this. Thanks for submitting this recipe!
