Several years ago, I gathered together my mother's recipes and scanned them into my computer,making her a recipe book of all her favorite recipes. I kept all the original recipes for myself and gave her the compilation of recipes I had created.
The other day I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the collection of recipes. I had to look through them again to see if there was anything I was wanting to bake, make, cook or create in my own kitchen.
I found several recipes of interest. But this recipe is the one that popped out at me! It was one of my Grandmother's favorite recipes written in her own handwriting. So I decided to give it a try.
