“This recipe is from my great-great-grandmother. It has been passed down through the generations. The problem was that there were no measurements, so you had to make it by trial and error until you got it just right. This is our dessert for Thanksgiving. My aunt makes it now, but she shared the recipe with me when we moved away. We cannot be without this very filling dessert. It is best warm with lots of whipped cream on top. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have for so many years.”
