This recipe came to me from Louise via Ethel, two Pensacola friends. I don't know how many times I have lost this recipe and then found it, sometimes too late for the holidays, when I bake Pecan Butter Balls. My losing and finding the recipe reminds me of a little saying that is my motto: "Those who are so proud of a neat desk will never know the sheer joy of finding something they thought had been lost forever!" The same goes for piles of recipes in the kitchen . . .
