RECIPE BACKSTORY
When my children were small, I had a Portuguese neighbor that spoke no English. She made something very similar to these for me and I "had to have" the recipe. Because of our language barrier, I asked her young daughter for the recipe. It went something like this... "some flour and sugar and about a bar of butter and a mug of milk with some eggs." I Played with the ingredients and this is what I came up with. It's a winner every time.
