“This is a recipe I got from my mom who, I believe, got it from an aunt. Either way, it is really easy to throw together and disappears FAST! I made it this weekend and people were licking the bowl! This is a doubled recipe. I always make it this way because people gobble it up. Feel free to halve it if you are only making it for a few people, but, I can't guarantee there will be any left over!”
