Recipe from a taste of home
This recipe is from a woman named Emmie Oddie, who's a well-known home economist in Canada She had a column in a farming newspaper, and would test her reader's recipes in her own kitchen. Then she would write about the recipe. These are so tasty sweets and are so rich that you only need a small piece. But I love the idea of no baking and they make great holiday treats!
