I've been making this for years. Awesone recipe
Followed recipe to rhe tee.
A friend of mine gave me this receipe many years ago and from the first batch I knew there was a huge difference. The difference was in the butter vs margarine taste. Land O' Lakes is our favorite butter for baking, cooking and spreading. My home of six (6) only eats butter and we can taste the difference between a good butter (yours) and a not so good one. Keep serving us delicious tasting butter. Thank you! The Kelley's from Maryland
