This recipe came from a Paula Deen magazine. I have misplaced it several times now, much to my husband's disappointment. I am finally putting it on Zaar so I will be able to find it in the future. I typically double the recipe and freeze at least one. I have included OAMC directions for the recipe, although they were not in the original recipe.
