Top Review by kateleestar

My Mother passed away suddenly a few years ago, and recently I've been on a hunt for recipies she made when I was a kid so when I have kids I can make them too. My grandma's friends in PA were Pennsylvania Dutch (she was 1/2 italian and 1/2 french)and she made this ALL THE TIME, and so did my Mom. This tasted just like I wanted it to. Thank you SO much! 5 stars!
