This is a creamy spread that is cooked. My Aunt Erma Lee was a great cook. Feel free to adjust the sugar to your taste. This is a great spread for sandwiches with soup. Try spreading it on buns with hamburgers or sloppy joes for a new twist! Soars above store-bought! Can be kept under refrigeration for up to one week.

Cook's Note:

Creamy salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip(R)) works in place of the mayonnaise, if that's your preference.

I really liked this and wouldn't change a thing with it. It brought bag memories from childhood but was way better than the store bought I used to eat. Great recipe! Read More
