I would love to give credit to the publisher of this recipe, but I cannot because I do not know from wence it came.The recipe is written out by hand on a sheet of notebook paper. I know that I found it in a magazine at a friend's house many years ago and copied it down. While it looked delicious, I didn't make it for the first time until this past Thanksgiving. It has been the most requested dessert in our home ever since.
