How does it feel to create such an immensely popular recipe? If that's all you were every known for, would you be happy or sad?
Thank you for joining us!

What I did do is promote it in the Times for many years and put it in at least three of my cookbooks, including the latest, Cooking for Comfort.
I think it is beloved because it is so easy and so delicious. I once made 24 at one time and put them in a friend's freezer for the winter. She went on vacation; her mother came to take care of her children and when she returned home she called and asked me how many I had put in the freezer. "24 and 2 were for your.'' Long silence.
My mother must have loved them. There are only xx left. Tday I can't remember whether there were only 12 left or less.
It wouldn't be a bad thing to be remembered for!
