My family voted these 5 stars!! I found this recipe in my latest estate sale find. The 1964 Pillsbury Bake off winning recipes booklet. This recipe was a Jr winner in 1964. The winners name was Jean Nurse. This recipe was all I could find when I googled the recipe, Jean Nurse and Jr winners-Pillsbury Bake Off. Would love more info, if you have it!
