Personal Notes:
These are delicious and I know one of Amelia's favorites. They always bring back wonderful memories of Grandma Fern and her lemon colored house in the U.P. Recipe can be doubled and put in a 9x13 inch pan so there are plenty to share with neighbors. I know from doing so that Carol Halsaver loves these!
