Sorry ladies, do not remember where I got recipe. Found in my trusty old folder, that I am sorting out. Handwriten, not my writing, apparently writen by friend. I promised myself that I would start writing, who, what, where and when. I am anxious to see if I remember to do so.Have not made this, but it sounds so delicious, and reads so easy, I am ready to try these. If anyone beats me to it, let me know if they are good.
