If I said this recipe only makes 4 servings, would anyone believe me? Actually, the entire batch was consumed in no time by 3 hungry & raving people [& you can forget about letting "...cool completely on rack," 'cause it just won't happen! Which only means that I'll HAVE to make more before long! This is a great recipe ~ very easy, very tasty, & no need for a storage container! Thanks so much!
