My Aunt Helene, who I always remember being a wonderful cook growing up, gave me this recipe. I have not tried it yet, but it sounds delish! You can serve them with butter or your favorite tomato sauce. I am guessing at prep time and cook time as they are not specify in recipe. Please let me know if you make them. Hope you enjoy.
