Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from the Attic Angels cookbook, published in 1894. The Attic Angels organization began in 1889 when 2 Madison sisters started sewing clothes for poor families. The cookbook was produced to help raise money for their efforts. Our newly renovated (but old) Mandan Crescent home was featured on an Attic Angels' home tour in 2005, to make money for the organization's work.
