I got this recipe at Seattle Pacific U. 40+ years ago from our Home Ec. teacher, and it has been a favorite of my family ever since. It doubles easily. It is simple,easy, and better the second day - if that happens. My son-in-law even requests it at Thanksgiving. Kids can make it easily, or even husbands.
