Personal Notes:
Jan Davies often fixes these bars.
Aunt Genevieve Laverty made these bars, which were a favorite of nieces and nephews. The original recipe, written in her hand, was on the front and back of a Farmer's Savings Bank check. Mary Margaret added a note: Eleana and Alex, My mother used to make these for family reunions and now I do. My mother was your Grandma Gevelinger's sister and your Grandma loved them too. Hope you try them some day. Mary Margaret (Laverty) James.
