One of my recipes --- published years back in the Great American Heritage Cookbook --- which contained favorite recipes of home economics teachers. Walking down memory lane on this chilly winter day.


  1. It sounds perfectly delicious! You were a home ec teacher? Now that sounds like fun.

  2. I just realized how hungry I am. This does sound good...

  3. Sounds delightful - will print it out too!

  4. This recipe is so different for a pie, but sounds good.
