My mother has made this recipe since I can remember and it has now become a tradition for me to bring it to Thanksgiving with my new inlaws. Thank you for posting it! I don't know what I enjoy more- eating it or the way it makes the whole house smell so incredible while baking. Definitely a good dessert for the holidays!
