Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I really donít remember where I got this recipe. I do remember that my Aunt Helen Johnson made this when I was a little girl so I may have watched her and then I made it. I also remember that when we had bake sales at school that Doug Powers always bought this because it was his favorite.

From Sue Fischer - Memories:

There was a time when we were taking exams in Algebra II class. J.B. told me to leave my worksheets in the bottom of my desk when I left and he would pretend to sharpen his pencil. Well, I did and looked back in the room and all the boys were lined up at the pencil sharpener Ė taking turns, I guess. Anyway, I didnít make 100 but J.B. did because he changed one of the answers thinking we might get caught if we both had the same answers for every problem. I should have known better.
