This recipe was handwritten by my grandmother. The recipe is barely readable due to the deterioration of the paper. I am guessing it dates early 1940's as this is one of the oldest recipes in her recipe box. Slice thin due to the richness, or give a whole or part of a log as a gift - keep in the fridge. No name or date, Chill time is cooking time.
