I got this way back before I was married in a Good Housekeeping magazine. Been making them ever since! By the way, as Sharlene-W pointed out, I was actually married in a church, not in a magazine...

Yummy! I did not add the walnuts, and I used about 3/4 tsp of nutmeg because I was afraid it would be overpowering. I made these for a potluck at DH's work, and they received rave reviews! I will make them again sometime so that I can enjoy more than one of them...I think they would be wonderful with a cup of coffee. Thank you for posting, I will make them again!
