Grandma used to make these when we were young — mainly for Dad. But, I always found a way to sneak a few. Today, I still have to sneak a few . . . only this time, I’m trying to steal them from out of my kids’ hands. They love these with breakfast, for a snack at school, and as an after dinner dessert.

  • 3 tbsp butter

  • 1 cup flour
