Due to some mold issues in our rental home, causing a move, I'm having to toss a number of personal items. One of them is a handwritten recipe book I've had for a number of years. I've decided to take the opportunity to post the recipes for my own use and to share. :)
I have never made this one, but it's family history! I'd love to try it with some Date Lady date sugar to make it all the way healthy!
