This is a recipe my great uncle makes each and every Christmas. While growing up in Ohio, my parents and I always looked forward to this family tradition. My uncle Jack calls them “little pieces of heaven” and let me tell you - THEY ARE! My husband, Randy, has grown to love them and they are now a tradition in our household. Even our dogs, Briley and Gunnison, get a “little piece of heaven” during the holidays. These are sure to be a hit with your family, so get ready to enjoy!
