Everyone loves this treat! A friend gave me this recipe fifteen years ago. The recipe makes nine loaves but can be cut to 1/3 ingredients for 3 loaves. I've made them every Thanksgiving and given them to neighbors and friends. These are baked in small loaf pans and must rest 24 hours before slicing. Enjoy!
