    This is yet another of my family's recipes. My mom used to make this every Christmas morning. It was and is a special treat that I hope to carry on with my family. This recipe came from an old Betty Crocker cookbook. Glaze recipe for the puff follows the instructions.

      From the list of steps, initially I though I'd grow old before completing the recipe, but actually it went together quickly. On second thought, it may be just too much of a sacrifice to share. ;-) Made for A/NZ #41 recipe tag.

      These were amazing! I sprinkled finely chopped pecans over the top of the glaze for an added touch. Will make these again soon!
