    DallasDiva22's Note:

    I found an old Southern Living magazine from 1985 in a box in mom's attic, and found this original recipe in an ad for Nilla Wafers. It's lower in sugar and flour than more modern recipes. My family doesn't like overly sweet desserts, so this will be made at our 4th of July get together.
