“Fantastic recipe when made correctly rolls like a charm. This is one of the many recipes from my grandmothers cookbook. She passed away in May of 2005 and I am recording her wonderful recipes for my family and the many generations that will follow. I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as we do. I have not made each one yet-so cooking time and servings may vary.Blessings from FOURMRANCHWIFE in Texas”
