Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mamaw, John Spencer's grandmother, spent her winters in Kissimmee with her daughter and son-in-law, Iris & Dale Spencer. Suzanne & Dru were old enough to enjoy and remember Mamaw. She also made beautiful quilts for the grandchildren.

This recipe, found in Granny Spencer's cookbook from the 1930s, was written in Mamaw's handwriting and a point of inspiration for this cookbook.
