A Little Taste of Heaven.


Over the years, this recipe has become my signature fall dish. Friends and family look forward to the fall season to get a taste of this delicious treat. Every time I serve it to someone new, they ask me for the recipe, so, I thought I’d share with all of you. Warning… there is nothing low fat about this one. But it is worth every calorie. Enjoy!
