“This is a recipe I got off It is a recipe she says she got from her friend Diane. I've never tried it but I'm posting it here so I can adjust the recipe down. The original recipe calls for bakers or farmers cheese, but I can't find that here. If you use farmers cheese the recipe calls for 4 1/2 C sugar instead. Since I haven't made this times and servings are guesses.”
