    I found this recipe in a Country Living magazine, a few years ago - and have made it many times since. It is a good recipe for those chilly days. Good comforting dessert.

      Simply delicious recipe this. It is quick and easy to make, and is a taste sensation. It is tasty while still being quite light, although quite sweet.
