“The Monroes often served Waverly Jumbles, the original 1800's recipe from the Monroe Family Recipes Cookbook follows, however I have posted the 'updated' version - which is the same recipe but with more specific directions. The original recipe says "One pound of flour, one-half pound of butter, three-fourths pound of brown sugar, two eggs, one-half teaspoon of nutmeg, two tablespoons of rose water. Roll out long and cut into strips, join into rings and bake." Time to make doesn't include the dough chilling time.”
