Jam Squares has been the family recipe for many years and brings the memories of our family together having a super time building Jam Squares and hardly waiting for them to cool down enough to cut. The family photo submitted is at my mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary - now the two men on the ends "The bookends" are now in heaven. My Dad Leonard Wynosky and my Sister's Husband Steven Parisi - We miss them both.
