Before you look over this recipe, decide if who you are baking for is worth it. You think we are kidding! They are worth the extra effort. When my mother-in-law, Barbara made these for us, we felt the love. Spread the love and make these for that extra special someone…..they are worth it. The portions are bite-sized, therefore they make enough to freeze part of this recipe. Barbara found this in one of Southern Living Cookbooks.
