I found this recipe on the side of a flea market vintage box of Kerr caps and I've copied it word for word here. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks so good I wanted to make sure and save it. I can see these with vanilla ice cream in the summer or as a side dish to a savory roasted meat in the winter.
