This is a favorite that is usually served at Christmas time in my church. I don't think that after all these years anyone remembers who originally shared the recipe.

I made some of these with my little grandniece and they were great! We used spicy gumdrops and it really added flavor to the cookies. Great to make for the holidays and I just may do that!
