      This was absolutely outstanding!! A huge hit at our Thanksgiving potluck luncheon at work. I made a few changes as follows: to filling mixture, I added 1 banana, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. I used evaporated skim milk in place of the heavy cream and margarine in place of the butter. I had to cook it longer than the recipe called for (about 45 minutes to 1 hour ) It tasted even better the next day!!! People who did not even know that I brought it were asking me if I had tried it, and begged for the recipe when I told them that it was my dish!! Thank you Sue L for this new Thanksgiving staple in our house.
