I found this recipe somewhere online, printed it off, and promptly forgot the source. When I went to use it, I realized that there were a couple of rather important items referred to in the directions that weren't in the ingredients list--the butter and the sugar! So I guessed at the amounts, and if the original, correct recipe was better, then I'd like to taste it, because this version is great!
