Can you believe it? These sandwich loaves were considered "fancy" fare by the ladies of our church in the 1950's. The note on Mom's recipe says, "Served to Women's Group. Everyone loved it."

Posted for my Mom's cookbook which is in progress.

Picture from a local newspaper "The Liberty Bell". The clipping was dated 1956. Paper went out of business in the 1960's.
