This is delicious. I make it every year for the holdidays and everyone in the family loves it!

This was fantastic! Just sweet enough to be a sweet main dish rather than a dessert. I brought two batches of it to a pot luck dinner, and there was just one little spoonful left in one pan when I left! Everyone asked for the recipe. Yum.

A fantastic recipe for brunch. Serves a lot of people and can be served at room temp, cool, or warm. Very much like a dessert. Have made it several times and everyone wants the recipe.
