Thanks for the great recipe & images. I was tickled by your comment about transcription. All of my mother's and grandmother's recipes were written that way. You were lucky to have found direction, mine only had ingredients. Guess they had better memories than m...LOL. I am going to dig through some old boxed of my g'mother's. She helped edit a church cookbook probably 50 years ago and there are quite a few recipes I could share. Keep up the good work,
