There are several recipes posted which are similar to this, but by the Gods of the 60's, this is the basic one so many of our bridge-playing, menthol-cigarette-smoking, cream-of-mushroom-soup-casserole-making mothers had ready for us after school. I do the same for mine (without the bridge, cigs or Campbells) and they are always devoured. The recipe doubles and triples, butter substitutes well for the shortening and I use whatever nuts are on hand - they all work.
