This is a classic Appalachian holiday candy that my Granny and Pa used to make. When I asked my dad how to make them, he said you have to play with the amounts to get the consistency you want. You want it to be the consistency of play dough so you can roll it out. What this has to do with archers from the Bayeux Tapestry is anyone's guess. I don't reckon William the Conqueror would have had this treat, but if he had, I think he would have liked it.
