This recipe comes from a cookbook called: "America's Best Cookbook for Kids With Diabetes". (I figured it is a pretty good cookbook for anyone with diabetes though)...It was written in 2005 by C Bartley. A friend gave me the book and the recipes that I have tried are awesome. I think this one would be a great "Gift In a Jar" diabetic recipe so I have done that here.
