Today I'm sharing a recipe I got from the wife of one of my teachers, when I was in 9th grade. He was starting a strawberry farm (DeLanges, for those in the area). He asked a few of us to work for him, planting and weeding. Every day his wife would bring a snack out to the field for us, and this was one of them. The fact that I'm still making this, after all these years (since 1975) tells you this is a good one! I've had many people ask for this recipe - it's always liked!
