Personal Notes:
One of my favorite grandma's recipe's she made for Christmas. I would get my very own bucket of these I enjoyed them so much. This is a recipe that will be lost if not preserved. My grandma is no longer able to make these due to the intense mixing but I learned from her a few years ago and now carry the torch.
