The Amish are well known for their baked desserts, it's no surprise that when you look in an amish cookbook almost half the recipe's are a dessert of one type or another. One of the main reasons is because everything is made from scratch. (and who doesn't love fresh baked goods?!) This recipe is so sweet and tasty and the smell of vanilla and cinnamon absolutely fill the house for hours after baking it.
