I have been making this recipe for years! I found it originally in 1999 in a Pillsbury Home for the Holidays recipe booklet. The recipe is very easy and very delicious. I've never have anyone turn it down or not finish it, and usually they ask for seconds! This one is one of my all time favorites!!!
