Notes

My neighbor, who is like a grandmother to me, threw me a wedding shower when my husband and I got married 20 years ago. Each of the guests had to bring a recipe for me. This is the recipe I got from my neighbor.

Oh shoot! Sorry, I'll get that fixed. Glad you were able to adjust properly LOL

There is no Temp listed or amount of flour. I made this as cupcakes with 2.5 cups of flour and baked them for 30-35 mins @ 350 degrees. They Are delicious!!

A dash of local for every season
