Personal Notes:
This recipe was passed down from generation to generation. Lilly got it from her mom. She made them in a jelly roll pan, so used more than this recipe. It was a hit at all reunions. Jay Boss would say: "Aunt Lil is here with her apple slices. Let's eat!" Many cousins asked that this recipe be in the cookbook. Her daughter Ardis found it! Newspaper
