“(This recipe has evolved from an X-Mas snack along side tangerines and Mammy's Float, to an assembly-line production with tins distrubuted throughout the U.S. to family.) Years ago Mom compiled a family cook book for my eldest sister when she went off to college. What has become of the final version I don't know, needless to say its gone. However I've got Mom's notes. I'm attempting to save these recipes by posting them here. Any of Mom's special notes I'll include in parenthesis. But needless to say some of these are not complete recipes. Enjoy! I haven't made this in a long time so the yield and and cook times are based purely on my memories.”
