Personal Notes:
Memories from Donnalee (Cater) Geiger: I was going through Rubys recipes for her to add to cook book and came across this recipe. It was written in MY mothers handwriting, Evelyn Cater. Not sure where it came from unless she had given it to Ruby when Michael and I were married. It may have been served at our wedding. But I was excited in finding it because I haven't had these in a really really long time. My mother used to make them when we were growing up. It was always a treat for us!! Ruby must have loved them too!!
