My maternal grandma didn't cook many desserts, but when she did, this was it. When she passed away, we all figured that we would never have it again as she never wrote anything down. My mom happened to come across an old community cookbook with Grandma's recipe in it. She didn't tell any of us and surprised all of the granddaughters the next Christmas with copies of that old cookbook.
