Wish I could say; This is MY own recipe… but I can't. My husband and I where discarding a few old books. And came across a 1970 Farm Journal Christmas Book. It was silly to keep the book, just for one recipe. So I copied the recipe, TRIED to take a photo form the book. It's a bit "time consuming", but worth it! ANd best part of it is; you don't have to wait until Christmas to make this!
