Super easy & delicious. Got this as a clipping from my Grandmother, before she passed away. She said it was quick, easy, and impressive...good for having guests. I finally made it for the first time, and she was right. Rave reviews from everyone, going back for 2nds and 3rds. Had to whip up another one just for my family to have the next day.
