I clipped this recipe from the Chicago Tribune many years ago. I made it often but had forgotten about it until I was searching for things to make for a holiday party.

Heaven rightfully belongs somewhere in your title for this dessert, SQ, because I died & went there w/my 1st bite. Certain body parts are conflicted as I type … My mouth reveres you, but my hips curse you! You know me well enough to know my hips always win these contests! I made them exactly as written, but did use vanilla flavoured yoghurt & made my own sour cream for them as we discussed. I do feel a bit threatened now tho … Siggi will prob want to divorce me, murder Jerry & marry you now more than ever! I count myself lucky there are laws to protect Jerry & me. These are 10 star winners in my book & will grace our table & delight our friends often. Thx for this one SQ. Yum!
