"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

My mother-in-law, Mary Whittington, gave me this recipe. The first time I brought it to a family gathering, It went so fast that I didn't even get to taste them. Now the family expects me to bring them. If I don't, there is a lot of loud grumbling.
