Recipe by my grandmother, Rosalind Ferrell. She wasn't ever very wordy with her recipes :) At least it makes sense. I have not baked this yet, but I will soon. As soon as I do, I will have a picture for you. If you've tried this and enjoyed it, let me know! It would really mean a lot to me.

Feel free to leave a picture as well!
