Notes

Just found this recipe I didn't know I had! It was wrapped in old newspaper so I never opened it cuz I thought it was just another newspaper recipe. To my delight when I did open it I found this treasure!!! It was written in a different writing than my other recipes. I'm pretty sure its from my Finnish great great grandma cuz it kinda reminds you of the Dutch oliebollen but also different than the recipe I was given by my Dutch great grandma :) But this one is so cool its written in poem form! Except the note at the bottom. It also has some broken english and some letters missing at the ends but still able to read it :)
