Macaroni and cheese from Cooking in the Archives

The modern version of 18th century macaroni and cheese was deemed delicious by Marissa Nicosia of Penn State Abington on her blog, Cooking in the Archives: "... a dense, satisfying mac and cheese that was remarkably easy to make. The sherry flavor came through in a unique rich way. ... Unlike many modern recipes for mac and cheese, this one does not involve any milk or heavy cream."
