Recipe by Bobbie
This recipe is taken from an old Pillsbury cookbook I have had sitting on the shelf. It says it comes from a Bed & Breakfast called Pincushion Mountain in Grand Marais, Minnesota. I haven't made it yet, but it sounds very good, plus it is assembled the night before you need it (love those kind of recipes)!
