Taste of the Times

When I go through my recipe box and find a hand written recipe from my mom its always a special feeling. She gave me this recipe over 30 years ago and told me it came from a Farm Journal. Everyone loves these when I make them. I can still see moms in a Tupperware container, each row separated by wax paper. They were a real treat then and I only make them on special occasions. Now days mom makes me write out my own recipes and she still has plenty to share.
