My family has made this for awhile and I love it... I lost the recipe and tried another kinda like it on a magazine site but it wasn't the same... finally got the recipe again from my family and wanna post it so I never loose it again... Hope you enjoy... Feel free to add your own pics and give feedback :) This is my Grandma's recipe passed down & I am sorry I do not make it any other way because this is the way I like it. My father before he passed away would make this for me a lot! It bring's back a lot of memories to me and I wouldn't want to make it any other way....
