  1. This is a very good recipe..exactly as shown in Colorado Cache, Jr League of CO cookbook pg 257. However i found that 1/2 C butter was WAY too much - 1/4 C or even less is just fine. Otherwise too greasy and dont need all that fat anyway! This recipe is always a hit.
  2. This is a great recipe - and very easy to make. I make lots of the recipes from Colorado Cache cookbook. P.S. I used the full amount of butter and it's delicious.
  3. I am really surprised that up until now no one has written a review. This is a really good recipe which I haven used many times and people really love it. Please give it a try you will love it. The version I use only has one egg though. I give it 4 stars only because I don't think so many eggs are necessary. Very yummy!


I love to cook, but don't have a lot of time to do it, since I work full time. I like to try a new recipe every Saturday, if time allows. <br> <br>I have one grown son and three grandaughters ages 16,10 and 3. The ten year old has won many medals in gymnastics meets over the past few years.
