I have never heard of anything like this, but it sounds GOOD! I love anything with a glaze that soaks in and makes it gooey, and these flavors just sound incredible! This is yet another recipe from that cookbook that my great aunt gave me that was compiled for her local high school homecoming reunion. I was so intrigued by this one I just had to share. Enjoy! Note:Photos borrowed from the internet. **Original recipe is from the Plummerville Homecoming Cookbook, 1994, and the recipe credit goes to Geraldine Potter Weatherby.**
