This recipe is in an old family recipe book and the "Mom" in the name of the recipe refers to my great-grandmother. Every year my grandmother would bake these for Thanksgiving. The second I would walk into her kitchen I would always make a beeline for the counter where I knew they would be sitting to make sure we had them. I would often sneak one out of the basket with my grandpa before dinner for a little appetizer (and to make sure they were baked to perfection!) For me, it’s not Thanksgiving until these are on the table. Someone in my family is always responsible for baking these each year at Thanksgiving!
