My mother collected recipes. She wrote them on white, lined recipe cards and stored them in a big square plexiglass recipe box. Many of the hand-written recipes had notes on them, along with the name of the friend who'd given it to her scribbled on the top. As well, she had a big recipe binder stuffed with recipes from newspaper and magazine clippings that were pasted onto thick pieces of paper for safekeeping. I found this recipe tucked away in the baking section, and is definitely worth a try.

Flatten a little and bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
