    Recipe Introduction

    This is an old German family recipe... yes, really from MY family. I am not sure it is spelled right but pronounced 'FILT-ZEL". I have been totally unable to find any references to this on the internet, but I remember my Grandma and Grandpa Scheffer making this every holiday. The recipe is the best of memory from my Aunt Connie's recipe cards. - Ginny
