I had that magasine and kept it for years just for this recipe which I made several times. Its such a great recipe. Somewhere along the way I lost the magazine and true to form had never copies out the recipe. Thanks so much....this one is a keeper.
I have made this recipe several times over the years. I kept my copy of For The Love of Cross Stitch that it was in. We have moved three times in the last 2 years and I missplaced my magazine. I was thrilled to find this web site. This is an excellent recipe for the fall and winter months. The Sweet Butter Sauce is a must!!
I also lost my copy of this recipe which I got from the same magazine as the other two reviewers and was excited to find it again on this website. I just finished making it and it is as good as I remember it being. I added a little freshly ground allspice and mace. Absolutely the best of its kind.
