This recipe is dedicated to the loving memory of Aunt Norma, Norma Knapp. What a wonderful woman, I miss her so much. It was Norma that taught me how to wallpaper many years ago! So, in her memory, I am including one of her recipes, a very favorite of ours, that my family makes often, mostly on special occasions.
