Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Recipe was from the Washington Post Paper; it was made in a sheet pan, cut in small to large squares, placed on top of each other to form a tree. Sprinkled with powder sugar. Mrs. Brightwell decided she liked the tube pan. She made this every Christmas.
Make sure you use a tube pan because a bundt pan is too small.
