This recipe has always been a part of my family since I was a little kid. I remember my Grandma used to make these all the time! She was a very skilled pastry chef, and I am so grateful to her for a lot of recipes! I have listed all the ingredients and directions so all you have to do is to follow them step by step and you are good to go!
