Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from a Charlie Brown Cookbook that I received when I was very young. I made these Great Pumpkin Cookies, Lucy's Lemon Squares (on another page in this book) and Schroeder's Green Beans. It was my first tries in baking and cooking. These recipes have endured time and my bad memory!
