Everyone loves this treat! A friend gave me this recipe fifteen years ago. The recipe makes four loaves and can easily be doubled. I've made them every Thanksgiving and given them to neighbors and friends. These are baked in small loaf pans and must rest in the refrigerator for 24 hours before slicing. Enjoy!
