I'm pretty sure that this came from the oatmeal box in the 1960's. It has been posted here and won a blue ribbon, so I guess the blue ribbons are not orginal recipes! I want this for my cookbook that I am compiling for my kids and generations to come, therefore I am posting in my name. TNT My recipe card is typed long way on an old Royal Typewriter...ah what memories! :)
