I always do this the day before, they taste better when they have a chance to absorb the flavor. Then the day we are eating them I place them in a 350 oven until hot. Place in serving bowl and serve.
My Hubby loves these!! It is a recipe from my grandma Barbara. I think of her every time I make them. I use to ask her exactly how each time I made them. I miss that. I hope you enjoy them and create many happy holiday memories as you eat them!
