An elderly friend gave me her entire recipe collection, and I found this tucked in an old book. It was handwritten on a very yellowed piece of paper in fancy script, and she told me she thought it had been one of her grandmother's. I lost track of this recipe until recently, so I'm sharing it here. I haven't made these yet, but intend to very soon. Who needs measuring cups, anyway?! LOL
