Sounds like Nanaimo bars. I just want to tell you how much I enjoy coming to this site. I wanted to do something like this with my grandmother’s recipes (which seem to be from the same era) but frankly, there is no need as you have done such an incomparable job. I treasure her old cookbooks, but this is also a treat for the vintage recipe lover.

This has been written by someone from England, because my grandmother was raised there and that’s how they write the letter “r”. That’s how my mom’s and her recipes were identified from each others…cause they would swap and share and then collect back again….LOL

Nanaimo is a little town where the ferry docks from Canada onto Vancouver Island off the west coast of Canada. Canada is Brittish. That probably explains why the letter “r” was written that way.
