My mom copied this from a book compiled of favorite recipes submitted by my classmates when I was in grade school. She made this exact recipe (which I too copied down) frequently when I was growing up and it was always one of our favorites. She now makes it for my niece. Mom doubles the ingredients and pours the mixture in an 8x8 dish to cool rather than dropping on wax paper. When cool, she cuts into bars (similar to brownies).
