“This recipe was made by a church member for the church staff when we were invited to her home for a Christmas luncheon. It is absolutely wonderful and everyone raved about it! We all begged her for the recipe and she was gracious enough to supply it. For the complete elegant meal that she served, please also check out "Dot's Vegetable Casserole", "Spiked Pork Tenderloin with Sunny Pear Chutney" and "Cherry-Cream Cheese Pie and Graham Cracker Crust". A meal that's a perfect "10"!”
