Recipe by Diana 2

I came across this recipe when going through an old recipe box. It was filed under "Christmas Specials". I probably haven't made this in over 30 years, but do remember that it was a yearly treat. I don't remember where I found it originally, but it's quite possibly an old Robin Hood recipe. Back then, I used to get a lot of pamphlets from RH. I'll have to make this again. Would be perfect for out cribbage get togethers. :D
