I got this recipe from my Great Aunt Julia. It tastes great and is so easy to make. The coconut is optional and since we don't like coconut, I leave it out. Be sure to sift the flour or corn starch, and stir after each addition so it doesn't get lumpy. I use a small hand strainer, hold it over the pot, shake a little at a time, and stir after each shake. It takes a little longer but works out better. I also use Splenda, actually the Walmart brand because it's cheaper, instead of the sugar, because my husband is diabetic.
