This is my story, and I'm sticking to it----this recipe has dairy in it, and protein and fruit and nuts and grains. Sounds healthy, huh? But it's also guaranteed to help you put on 5 pounds--and worth every ounce! This is one of Grandma Bateman's recipes. The hardest part is letting it sit several hours (overnight is best) before having a piece.
I'm going to give more detailed directions than normal so that the filling will turn out properly for you. The original recipe assumes the cook is comfortable with a white sauce-type mixture. Hopefully this will help avoid lumps in the cooked filling. (Terry)
