After the roast chicken I deboned it and used the meat for tonights dinner then put all the bones in drippings into a large Dutch oven and simmered for a couple of hours. Removed the bones, strained and refrigerated it so the fat would surface, thus making it easier to skim the fat off.

When I say that they are so, so much better than the store bought it’s really an understatement. How four ingredients can produce something so wonderful and unlike the store bought makes me wish I’d discovered them years ago.

Obviously you can fill these with your favorite filling, however, someone told us that her grandmother made these and right off the griddle they would butter them and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on them.  I made this batch and tried her idea. Wow! Let’s just say your
