  1. Thanks, NovaLee - I was having a hard Thanksgiving today, and came across this recipe. Will make and give it with thanks for many Thanksgivings to come!
  2. Wonderful idea for Thanksgiving! I made these in Wilton plastic disposable decorating bags (to resemble a cornucopia). I printed the blessing on the computer and stapled it to the top of each bag. I placed one on the top of each plate on the Thanksgiving table. We read this blessing as our prayer before dinner. Everyone young and old alike, loved it! I made 12 of these, and added each ingredient individually to the bags to make sure each bag got some of each ingredient.
  3. I made this up for Thanksgiving gifts. What a wonderful treat. Great mixture of sweet and salty, and I love the sympbolism of each item. This truly is a great "gift". Thanks
