This was a tradition in our house that my grandmother made for me during the Christmas and Easter holidays. It usually calls for chopped pecans or walnuts, but being allergic to tree nuts this was the one treat she could make omitting them and it didn't alter the flavor or consistency too much. I know there are other recipes that call for using canned biscuits, but making it all from scratch is SOOOO much better, I hope you agree. Happy eating and let me know what you think.
