Butter Balls (from Mary Kindsfater)

Kris Ball, e-mail message to Michael Miller.

I was going through grandma's recipe box last night looking for something good for Turkey day. I'm typing them verbatim...you may have to use your judgement, because grandmas was famous for, "a little of this, a little of that." BTW, what do you serve with Butter Balls? Noodles? I don't remember ever having them. (And note grandma's spelling--Dan Quayle would have been proud!) And has anyone ever had Dandelion Wine? Sounds awful!

3 scant cups of dry rolled bread crumbs
(1 cup of butter--this is scratched out)
Salt & allspice to taste
2 eggs
Enough cream to stick together
About 4 or 5 Tablespoons cream or more-you can tell when working with the ingredients.

Roll in balls the size of walnuts. This makes around 85 to 90 Butter Balls.
