Orange Fluff

Tammy T


This easy, yummy side dish dessert came from The Country Cook. This makes a great addition to a Thanksgiving dinner. Anything with mandarin oranges, mini marshmellows and pecans have to be good! I have added this to my Thanksgiving tradition and it is now a favorite! I like to try one new recipe a year which is my tradition I pass on to my children as I like to encourage new things with the old. Makes it fun! If we like it, we add it or replace something else as we are liking more than not! But with seven children, its never too much!
