This is a real family favorite!! The recipe was submitted by Mary Jean Hughes who received it from her Mom, Theresa Weier. Joyce Laverty shared the same recipe which was given to her by her husband Gary's mother, Genevieve Laverty. That recipe card noted that it was from Aunt Laura Tuschen. Milly Babcock also reported that this dessert was served for special occasions in the John and Kay McGraw household.
