EVELYN BAXTER TAMPLINS' CHRISTMAS LIZZIES
Evelyn Baxter Tamplins' Christmas Lizzies
"My mother always cooked fresh coconut cakes for Christmas. As a child, I liked to crack the coconut with a hammer and put a nail in it to drain the milk. She used some of it for the caek, but she let me drink it from the shell. She also made a jam cake with her own jam. she made an orange slice cake and used candy orange slides and nuts. "When I had my own family about fifty or sixty years ago, I made candy, popcorn balls, cookies and some cakes. The thing we liked best was the cookie called the Christmas Lizzie. We made Christmas Lizzies before Christmas. They will keep for weeks if stored in a comtainer."
