My Grandmother made these, and taught both my Mom and me to make them. The three of us made them together every holiday season for years. My Mom taught Ellie to make them when I thought she was really still too tiny to bake, and now Ellie too has to make them every year. She has been begging me for days -- it's time. We finally made them tonight and were happy to add the newest baker in the family, Ollie, into the fun.
The big guys are strictly about eating them, but they like the family tradition of making Meltaways too.
