This recipe has been with our family and friends for over 40 years. It is light and every oh so yummy. Throughout the years we have misplaced it and have had to call, or now in later times, e-mailed a friend or family member to see if they still have it. As with this time around I had to contact my ex-husband to see if he had it handy, after I first e-mailed my mom, who also could not find it, and my ex did have it and now it is posted and hopefully I will remember when I need it the next time where to look. Enjoy! There is a lot of history behind this recipe...
