Recipe by GlamAtomic

This recipe was taken from the 2 April, 1940 edition of the Vancouver Sun newspaper. It was a 'prize winning recipe' submitted by Mrs R.G. Gilman who says "this is an ideal recipe to use when preparing for luncheon or bridge parties". As I was unfamiliar with the term 'Graham Wafer', I did a quick check, and verified that they are the same as 'Graham Crackers'. Enjoy!
