Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
"From the peaches raised right outside her back door, Mrs. Arthur C. Burslie, The Dalles, Oregon, can hastily prepare this tempting concoction for family and guests." This appeared in the 1956 and 1961 Betty Crocker Cook Book. My Aunt Ruby Livedalen Peterson (niece of Theoline Christenson Dahl) was an associate editor on the staff for many years. (See White Christmas Pie)
Aunt Ruby submitted this recipe naming my mother, Cora Livedalen Burslie as one who prepared it for her family. Yummy!
