In the south we keep things simple and let everyone think that they are very difficult to make. This is one of those "old family recipes" that my sister and I used to share with only a few people. But folks loved it at holiday time or for any time for that matter. It's been to more family reunions, bank parties and has served as birthday and anniversary gifts than we could ever begin to count.
Today you are getting one of the Gray Girls...that's what they still call us down around Tishomingo, Oklahoma...old family recipes. Enjoy and be sure to use a half teaspoon of powdered sugar to dust across your nose so folks will believe that it is definitely not easy to make.
