This is a simple and delicious recipe! I made it while my 4 month old was taking her afternoon nap and it was made, baked, plus dishes washed by the time she awoke! Thank you so much for posting! :)

I also took this to church and shared it with my fellow members of our sewing bee. They loved it! So did my husband, and I have promised to make it for him again. I did make one mistake... I failed to read the last sentence! I sprinkled the topping before I put it in the oven. I will know better next time! Still, it turned out just fine. It will be even better next time. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
