This recipe was originally given to me by a very good friend ~ I have scaled down the fat and sugar content and made it my own through the years. I also added spices to the recipe, because lets face it ~ we all need a little spice in our lives ! It has become a family favorite at Thanksgiving time... Thank you Sarah M.W.
