If you use this recipe, consider yourself family. I rarely share it. This comes from a church member collection cookbooks that I've had for nearly 20 years. The beauty of this is that it is my mother in law's church, but was given to me by one of my step-daughters. I only use "step" to indicate that there's an extra level of sweetness added when "his" kids give you family books. When I talk about my five girls - it means they're mine - no matter how they came to me!
This recipe is my contribution to the annual request that makes Thanksgiving memories.
