Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If the raisin-nut combination appeals to you, this is a recipe you'll enjoy making and eating. And, as with many of Grandma's recipes, she only wrote down the ingredients. The oven temperature and baking time seemed pretty common sense to an experienced cook like Grandma. And, when did tins - I love that terminology - become sheets? Remember, with our modern day teflon sheets, the "grease" is omitted. May save a few calories!
