Ok, so if any of you remember that absoulutely devine dessert I made for the anniversary dinner; you'll want to keep reading. I don't like baked fruit makes me gag if you must know. However I had a piece of this and it is really good! OMG! We're talking eyes rolling to the back of your head, toes curling and strange sounds coming from your lips, yes it's that good! Ok, I'll stop. Now, several ladies asked me for the recipe and I being true to form keep forgetting. So, the next best thing is to post it here of course. Make this for Thanksgiving your family will love you! And here it is what you've all been waiting for, the recipe:
