Recipe by Kim D.
I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar in August 2006. I haven't tried the recipe, but I hope to very soon. Here is what the original poster said about this recipe: "This recipe has been passed down through my husbands family. I'm not sure where it originally came from, but I'm very glad it was passed down. It's a favorite of mine. I hope you'll enjoy it, too! They are very rich and I have to admit that we've been known to eat them for breakfast as well as dessert!"
