This recipe has always been a family favorite. This was my Grandmothers recipe. I remember when I was little and going to spend time with her she was the most fantastic cook. She always made my favorites when i would go and visit. No wonder my mom is such a great cook. She made everything from scratch. I hope you enjoy it too........

I had put the flour into the directions just not in ingredients. Thank you for noticing. I have my recipes written down mainly ingredients are written into preparing. So I have to sort through the recipe and put it together. Some I only have ingredients written down I just know from memory how to make the recipes.
