 NOTES : Excellent frozen. I have played with this over the years and add 1 t
 peppermint extract to the filling at the holidays in lieu of the vanilla,and
 have also used crushed peppermint candy in the filling. I have also coated
 them in confectioners coating. (Dip in chocolate) I don't remember how many
 it makes...my granny never had that on the recipe....a bunch, but they won't
 last!
