Recipe by Impera_Magna
I don't know how I got to be so "blessed" to be born into a family who isn't too fond of nuts, coconut, and raisins... perhaps that makes me enjoy them all the more when I do have them! Can't say enough good things about this recipe (from Southern Living)... sorta a portable pecan pie!
