These are very easy and impressive. They from a Good Housekeeping dated 1996...they are different and SO wonderful that you will probably have to make several batches as they are eaten as fast as they are made!

These are very fancy and tasty! It is a once a year recipe because of the time and attention needed to make them. However, it's worth it! Thanks for the recipe.
