This recipe is written on a pink piece of cardstock and sooo faded I can barely read it! Also well used. This recipe was handed down by my Grams (Grandma Berry) who was from the Netherlands and Dairy Farmers. She's the one who told us all to use the BEST ingredients. The recipe only has only a list of ingredients and baking time and temp!! I will include directions for you. :)
