I got this same recipe from my aunt from Texas, 58 or so years ago. It was fabulous & still is. I’d not made it in 10 – 16 years now. The thought hit my mind to make it for Circle, served with a wee sprinkle of pdr sugar accompanied by a citrus fruit slush drink.
Couldn’t find the recipe in the drawer, so—– into the net! Another triumph done! Came out fantastic. Had to print it out so’s to send it back down there so they can see where this may have originated. Thank You, That’s fantastic news. D’
