    Years ago you used to get recipe booklets in your bag of flour. This recipe was one in a booklet found in a bag of Gold Medal Flour. I have made it for years at Christmas. It is a family favorite and always requested as a 'must have' for Christmas. I simplified the steps by cutting them into rounds instead of squares. Next time I may simplify it further by using only one round and folding it in half.

    I have also been making these for years (about 50), and got the recipe from my mother who got it from my grandmother. I always thought that it was a family recipe. We always used a biscuit cutter, so you have a nice Cresent when you fold them over. We are located in the Ohio Valley area.

    This recipe has been in our family for decades. Was trying to track down it's origin. A lot of work but always requested every Xmas.
