I feel sure that the above recipe is an authentic one of my grandmother Nollie's, written by her own hand. There are no instructions included in her notes. Perhaps she thought any experienced cook would know what to do with these ingredients!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Nollie Hill Godwin was an accomplished cook, having had much practice while rearing her nine children and entertaining her twenty grandchildren. The back of this crisp brown paper has a number written on it ('56) that I believe to be a date of 1956. I would have been 13 that year and Nollie would have been 71. Perhaps the lines on the reverse are the drawing practice of a grandchild. Probably she never guessed that her descendants would be eager to have any recipe of hers to publish in 2007!
