Personal Notes:
Nina is the wife of George Sanders, the daughter of the late Ray & Fern (Prince) Hollenshead & the granddaughter of the late Charlie & Carrie (Wade) Hollenshead. This is a "Hollenshead Family Classic" from the pages of "Legacy of the Hollensheads" by Glynn and Johnette (Hollenshead) Oakes. I found this recipe in 1964 on the back of a pecan package.
