my mom taught me how to make this, I remember askign her for measurments and becuz she had been making it for so long, she no longer needed them, and had to look them up in her hand writen recipe box, it wasn't easy for her to fnd, now I've been making this recipe forover 10 years and I no longer need the measurements either.
