“Just found this recipe in my old recipe file. Grandma use to make this simple recipe to serve with tea in the afternoon. Only things on the old yellowed page are the ingredients, no directions, so I'm taking some liberty here. Think of it as an adventure . . . this is how our grandmothers use to cook!”
