My mom made this recipe when I was very young. Its cheery color and cinnamon scent make it just right for gray, winter days.

"I made this recipe over 55 years ago. I found the recipe in a book that my

Mom had pasted recipes she cut out of magazines. I was my first time I made a recipe that I chose the recipe and made myself. It is very good."
