 When I was transferred from the Main office to the PK branch of Graham Savings,
  one of the first phone calls I answered was from Faye Wilcher. We began a last
 ing friendship. The following Christmas, she brought me a batch of the above re
 cipe. I had tasted these at a Women’s Club meeting. Faye and I now have had a l
 ong and lasting friendship. We have laughed, cried, had lunch, attended Sunday 
 School and Club together and all because the recipe gave us something in common
 . Faye now lives in Lubbock but returns to PK as often as possible. Many things
  can happen when you have a good recipe.
