    Amy Nichols's Note:

    I found this recipe in the 2003 Taste of Home Cookbook. I made this because I wanted a dessert, but was in desperate need to go to the store. So, I began the search for a dessert with the ingredients I had, and found this. It is simply wonderful! It is now one of our favorites!
