I had a goal in mind to pick her brain about things she remembered from her youth, as you my readers know, I have a bit of a romanticized view of the way things used to be and I don't seem to tire of learning more and more about those times. While I was there, we came across a recipe that belonged to my great grandmother. My grandma shared remembering this recipe as being a delicious one that she and her siblings enjoyed (back before they had refrigeration even!) I brought this home and gave it a try right away, it was a HUGE hit!
I had to laugh out loud as one of my daughters said, "mom, I wasn't sure about these as sometimes older recipes were thought to be good only because there wasn't much extra so it was a treat, but these were REALLY good!" I have to concur. What makes it even sweeter is that I believe this is actually my great grandmother's handwriting on this slip of paper I photographed. It seems like a connection to the past when I can whip up a favorite recipe from days gone by.
