This recipe has been passed down by the women on my father's side for generations and when it was passed onto me, I couldn't be more thrilled! I has seen my grandmother make this many times before and now that I had it...I decided that I'd alter it just a tad( with grandma Cookie's permission of course) and lo and was perfection! Grandma even liked it. I hope you do too!
