This recipe comes from the cookbook Better Homes & Gardens Heritage Cookbook (pg. 334 under the Fairs & Expositions Heading, © 1976).  After devouring my mother’s copy (reading, not eating…) my mother gave me my own copy after she received a second copy.  Since the first time I read this recipe I have wanted to try it.  I am so excited to share it with you.  Happy National Day of Something on a Stick (tomorrow, March 28).
