Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a Johnson family favorite. Each generation has enjoyed these and have a different story. I remember coming in from mass and grandma and the aunts in the kitchen cooking and handing out doughs by the plate full to the kids. In later years Mom went to frozen bread and fried it in oil.
