What an old fashioned treat - tastes just as I remember my grandmother's when I was a kid. Shared with my daughter, her husband & my nearly two year old grand twins - everyone loved it. It took a bit longer than 40 minutes to actually get the mixture to thicken, closer to an hour for me, but I'm thinking that I was cooking on a lower heat than you, perhaps. Well worth the wait - thank you lhbishop for posting a reminder of my childhood - prepared for spring, 2013 PAC.
