Personal Notes:
These are a favorite. While going thru recipes, I found a very old one from Grandmother Virginia. As I got ready to include it, I realized they are identical! Good recipes stick around. These will sometimes stay puffed, and sometimes flatten out as they cool. Either way they are great if you like spices. Store in airtight container.
