“This is absolutely incredible!! I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did. This has become a very special treat at our house. One thing is for sure... it won't last very long once you make it -- it seems it gets eaten up as soon as it comes out of the oven! It comes from the kitchen at Food Network originally.”
