Personal Notes:
Mary Waishwell (my mom) told me that her mother-in-law (Walter Waishwell's wife, Mary Kolinski Waishwell) used to make this recipe. I now make it on Easter and people love it, though its something that takes a long time to make. Its not hard, but you have to be in the kitchen watching it.
