These are a staple at any true Southerner's party. I've been making these for almost 20 years and everyone loves them and requests the recipe, so I decided to share it with you so I wouldn't have to keep making copies. I can just send them to Zaar!

YUM! I made these today for a small New Year's Eve get-together. They smelled great while cooking and taste amazing. I only baked them for 45 minutes which was plenty. I'm going to share them but could easily eat them all myself. Thank you!

When I have to take a long road trip, I love to have a nice snack to help me along the way. So I whipped these up before heading off to visit DS at college, an 8+ hour drive. These turned out really yummy! Made enough for DS to share with dorm mates, and they loved them too. Great treat any time of year. Thanks for posting! Made for Football Tag.

Yummy! I used the habanero tabasco to make these, and was a little short on the 1st double batch which was so-so....when I used the whole bottle for the 2nd and 3rd batches, wow! awesome! Thanks for sharing. Made enough for gift baskets, and lots left over for me. Thanks
