of each rectangle. Make cuts 1 inch apart on each side of rectangle just to
edge of filling. Fold opposite strips of dough at an angle across filling,
alternating from side to side to give braided appearance. Blend flour with

Notes: This cookbook was acquired at a junk sale. It captured my interest
because of the annotated comments beside the recipes. The original owner
had made comments or just check marks beside certain recipes. I will
include these as I scan. This one had no markings.
