This recipe is very old, my ex-mother-in-law gave it to me in the 70s. It keeps well and serves a lot. We always had it at Easter. This is one of those that gets better after it sits awhile. Be sure to make it at least 1 day before you want to eat it for the best taste. When she got married she had never cooked, but she turned out to do pretty well! She had some good recipes. This was also in the PTA cookbook that they put together as a fund raiser. Lots of good home recipes in that booklet! It was held together with yarn threaded through 2 holes punched in the top of the pages LOL!
