A favorite treat of mine. It is a bit tricky for inexperienced cooks as every stage has different consistencies that are recognized from making these often. It is well worth the effort and practice. I have put what it should resemble, as you go through the steps, in brackets.
This is an old family recipe. We usually get together around Christmas time and make 100's of them. They freeze very well, but, must first be frozen on a cookie sheet. Once frozen they can be tossed together in a plastic bag to keep frozen for up to six months.
