I've always told people that this is an old family recipe that I got from my aunt and I have been making it for decades. It is truly loved by everyone and often requested for family gatherings. The funny thing is that I "remember" getting it from my aunt, but when I made it for her, she told me it's nothing like her recipe. LOL!!! She did love it though.
