I got this recipe from The Pioneer Women. Love her! I have made this several times now as everyone loves them! I bring these to pot lucks at work as they are now requested everytime we have a pot luck. You know how when you have a pot luck, everyone picks out what they will bring ... I don't get to chose, I am told what to bring and this is one of them. You know I love it though!! :D Anyone who cooks knows, love is the one ingredeint that is in every recipe!
