This was another family recipe given to us by our grandmother. Each family member makes it their own by adding something special to it instead of vanilla. Give it a try to see what you can come up with!

*you can substitute orange, lemon, or almond flavoring for the vanilla, or you can use a combination of several to give it your own signature flavor. My grandmother used orange and/or almond, but my mom used vanilla & almond.
