This recipe was published in a Southern Living magazine and my sister and I love it. YOU MUST USE A KITCHEN AID MIXER OR SIMILAR STAND MIXER! You cannot use a hand mixer or rotary bowl mixer. Easy and Yummy. You can glaze with thinned apricot preserves for a little more decadence. I have used the recipe for petit fours baked in a 10 x 15 pan with a poured/dipped fondant. This recipe always brings compliments. Prep time includes cooling.
