Personal Notes:
This recipe is from Lucy Huggins DeBerry, Louise & Bunny's Great-Grandmother. When I was entering this from Aunt Anita's collection, there was no flour on the recipe card. When I checked back, of course she knew how much right away....it does give me pause to wonder how many other recipes are missing just one ingredient!!!! ;-)
