"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
Known as "Pop" to his grandchildren, my daddy left a tremendous legacy of pride in his country and commitment to his family. This was one of his favorite cookies, and mom ("Grandmother") often made them for the holidays. Always looking after her "sweetheart", she would often put a roll in the freezer for him to enjoy when all the company had gone!
