I am 60 yrs. old today and my mother used to make this for my birthday. Mom passed away 20 yrs. ago and I haven't had it since. The recipe was in a paper cookbook I made for her in school. I was in 2nd grade. Feeling nostalgic today, I wanted to make it but can't find the cookbook. This sounds like the recipe. I'll let you know tomorrow.
