A friend, (Irene), sent this recipe and photo to me.
She did not say where she got it, so, I don't have a clue where it's from.

BUT...it sounds so good I wanted to share it with you all because I plan on making it myself. Sounds almost as good as a Pecan Pie!

(photo is NOT mine...it's the one Irene sent with the recipe)

P.S I revamped it to be more diet friendly before posting it, CinStraw
