Here I have two different recipe clippings from two different collections that are from the same author (Mrs. Harvey F. Rostiser)–the only difference in the two is the quantity of brown sugar required (one says 4 pounds, the other says 4 cups) so one is obviously a typo. Check out the recipe and let me know what you think the correct amount is. Date unknown for this recipe but probably 1950’s or 1960’s (I have more clippings from the same author with those dates). Recipe typed below along with scanned copies of both the clippings.
