Found this recipes in a Simple and Delicious Taste of home magazine. All I can say is WOOOOOW
so yummy. I made this for our work Christmas party dessert contest. A young male employee said if this was a girl I would fall in LOVE and marry her. He ate 5 or six pieces of this. It was a big hit with everyone who ate it.
