Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a favorite of Andrea, Ross and Steve.
Grandma would make these, wrap in saran wrap and tie with red or green ribbon. Grandpa would help her wrap them. They are a staple for Christmas get togethers.
This recipe was originally Lucille Anfinson's, Grandma's cousin.
