This is a little bit of a twist (spice-wise) on a Betty Crocker classic my mom made for us growing up. I like mine with a little more flavor, so I've upped the ante on the spices and adding nutmeg for a little extra kick.

This recipe is a favorite for kids and grown-ups alike and very quick and easy to make.
