Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe is a family favorite, made by my mother Louise Paulfranz, a generous, loving and giving Mother who was also an excellent cook and baker – She made this dessert often, especially for her grandsons Mark and Erik Brue (my sons). Her motto for life was “faith, family and friends” and always “desserts first” – all meals were planned around a dessert. She is missed much by her family – this is a special way to honor her. Romans 12: 9-12 was a few of her favorite Bible verses ---
