Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was a family favorite but it's damn tricky to make. Grandma's recipe is short on instructions. If you're not careful when you incorporate the eggs you'll get a curdled mess. But if you get it right, it's marvelous.

Grandma and my mom always served this with peanut butter and saltine sandwiches!
