This recipe comes from the Great American Favorite Brand Name Collector's Edition Cookbook. It's a very easy and tasty dish to prepare. Really nice served with Holiday turkey or ham dinners.

I LOVE this recipe. I found this years ago in a Kahlua recipe pamphlet. I lost this page from my booklet and I was so relieved to find this online. I added pecans to my recipe. This is always part of our Thanksgiving dinner.
