Personal Notes:
I wrote this recipe into the computer for Aunt Lenore. I couldn't help remembering that we (us kids) called her Aunt Nanna and thought this was her name until our adult years. We also didn't know that she wore a wig until we saw it hanging it up on a coat rack>(Yikes! were we scared). Aunt Lenore doubles or even triple the recipe cause they go very fast!
