“Makes two 1 1/2 quart souffle-like casseroles. Not really true souffles, but made in souffle dishes. Adapted from Gourmet. The person who submitted the original version to the magazine said it had been a favorite holiday dish made by his Aunt. I clipped this recipe almost 15 years ago, meaning to try it for the holidays. I think it sounds very unique with all of the extracts. Hopefully I will remember to try it this year, now that I have it stored on Zaar. Not for dieters!”
