I got this recipe in the late 70's when my mom and I collected free recipe leaflets from the produce section of Fred Meyer stores in the Northwest - FM was the original "Supercenter", years before folks in Washington and Oregon ever heard of Wal-Mart. This is my favorite recipe in the whole collection, although I haven't made it for 20 years until yesterday because it's so rare to get paper bags at the grocery store anymore.
