Personal Notes:
Mom's old recipe. It can be doubled or tripled without altering the results of this recipe. Over the years I have added chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, peppermint crushed candies and red hots for a different taste. It is also good with a drizzle of a frosting on them or just dust with powder sugar.
