I found this recipe on the web, stating that it was 125 years old. I tried it and it was so good! I make this whenever I have black walnuts on hand and I added my caramel nut glaze. I've served this to company and taken it to potlucks and everyone loves it. I usually don't get to bring any home. Enjoy!
