This was insane! Okay, if you are watching you waistline, keep looking for a different recipe but if not then this is something I for sure recommend! The only change I made to the recipe was to add an extra 1/2 cup of pecans to the top. SOOO good! Everyone at dinner devoured it. I was worried it would be too sweet (and it was sugary), but it worked out really well in the end. YUM! :)


I am from Indiana. My aunt introdused this recipe to the family some 35 years ago when I was a little girl. We have all used it at differnt Fall gatherings. Some have thought it to be served at dessert but we say no it goes right along with the main meal.
