Recipe by AmandaInOz

We often serve this after dinner in place of a cheese course. I don't remember for certain, but I think it's a Martha recipe.

I made this to serve as the ending course of a ribeye steak dinner. It definitely deserved their spot on the menu! The flavors here pair perfectly and it was the perfect ending to our meal! Easy & delicious! Discovered during Fall '09 Pick A Chef.
