This recipe was given to me by my Aunt Martha who was a wonderful baker. She always made everything from scratch for her family of 3 strapping farm boys and 1 girl. She and Uncle Joe had a large garden, which they shared with their near neighbors. She always made the most delicious meals from scratch. I am sure you are going to love this recipe.
