Recipe by Bec6206

A recipe by Jean Anderson for the "From the Governor's Pantry" cookbook, Lind House Association in New Ulm, Minnesota, July 1988. The book is dedicated to the many volunteers who had donated their time, talents and money to restore the John Lind home. This recipe is one of Jean's family's favorite holiday recipes. It comes for her husband's grandma of Swedish descent. Also, she likes to sour her cream and let it stand on the counter for 3 to 4 days before using. She writes, "I think the flavor is better!"
