    My youngest daughter is 26. She would tell anyone who asks that I am 101 years old!!! LOL, she got spanked the other day for it. Your a good daughter/granddaughter! Let me know if you find out the age(ish). The older the recipe the more I like it.

    I don't know, I'll have to ask my Mom. I won't date my Mother & Grandmother, but I'm 26... I could guesstimate the recipe at 50 or 60 years, but thanks for getting me thinking! I look forward to digging up the origins!
