When we lived in the city the girl across the street and I baked a lot. This is a recipe that we both loved and I keep it kear to my heart now as she is ill with cancer. Angie was and still is a terrific lady although older than I I still love her to death. This is for Angie. She also was Polish and when the Polish Pope was elected wanted the VAtican moved to Poland. I sure got my jollies out of that one.
