Thank God for Grandmothers, mine were the best. My maternal grandmother loved to cook and could be seen working in the kitchen or playing the piano and guitar anytime we popped in, which was often. She taught herself the piano and guitar way into her late 6os and 70s.
I was blessed to have her in my life until 3 days past her 95th birthday in October of 2000.
This was one of her favorite recipes. It is very good.
