The recipe was first published in THE HOME COMFORT COOK BOOK (Wrought Iron Range Company, 1937). The Cooks article authors (Pam Anderson with Karen Tack) deemed this one "the best." The article also includes directions for a "baked" version. Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #341 Recipe by: Cooks Illustrated, Feb. 1997, p. 21 From: Lou Parris
