    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This recipe was handed down to me by both my Mother and Grandmother that dates back to the 1920's. Women in the earlier days had to create many recipes as money was not readily available to purchase store products.

      I haven't made this yet, but it is the same recipe my mom used to make. We are Russian too :) It took half an hour in google to find a recipe that was like moms. I can't wait. Thanks Bill.
