From "Roaring Brook Cooks" which is a cookbook from a Westchester, NY school where my DH's cousins went. Their family tried this recipe and said it was very good so I am sharing.

Served this with citrus pork chops for dinner tonight and it was yummy. I cut the butter to 2 tbs and used golden raisins. Loved the addition of the toasted almonds.

Lovely, lovely deep rich brown appearance! We enjoyed the slightly sweet flavor as well. I felt that it needed less butter (a first for me). Would make it again, the put it in the oven and forget it aspect was great, but definately would decrease amount of butter to 2 tablespoons. Thanks for the recipe.
