Grandma Brown’s “A Delicious Dessert”

Grandma Brown’s “A Delicious Dessert”

When I was growing up my grandma used to cook and bake all of the time.  I was the baker in the family along with Grandma.  Before she passed away, she hand wrote her recipes for me and I am going to share them with you.  Some of them are left up for interpretation so I will do my best.
