I have a dear friend whom I've known since I was a young mother, over 30 years ago. We worked together way back then and we still see we each other from time to time. Today, she emailed this recipe to me and said that it is an absolutely wonderful snack. I wanted to share it here with you--since it sounds so yummy....
