Just the other day--while laying on the couch being sick--I watched Martha Stewart's TV program. Caroline Kennedy is writing a book featuring recipes from our country's past. Martha brought out her old catering service HUGE Hobart mixer, and it was fun (being sick & all "fun" is relative!) to watch her put this together---WOW! Today I was paging through a "Christmas traditions" book my SIL gave me a few years ago and wow--here's the recipe Martha S. & Caroline Kennedy were re-creating on the TV program. The book says, "From an old manuscript dated 'Mount Vernon, 1781" made by Martha Custis Washington for her grandmama." I'm purely guessing on the serving amounts.
