This old recipe literally fell out of the sky. I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business, when I saw this yellowed piece of newspaper clipping on the floor. It was torn out of the Indianapolis Star back in the Ice Age, and the credit apparently goes to Heloise. The recipe couldn't be more simple and it is very close to what I have made for years.
