Served at christmas time. This recipe has been handed down through my family and is made every Christmas. I can remember my Grandmother making these when I was a boy, as I waited for the beaters and so did my cat sebastian. Oh mommy loved him so oh dear crazy love.22.214.171.124 20:15, March 22, 2011 (UTC)kyle singler126.96.36.199 20:15, March 22, 2011 (UTC)
