I made this as an afternoon snack for our kids and their friends and it was all gone within minutes. It was so easy to make, that I made a second batch for after supper in no time. Now, that's my kind of baking - quick, easy, with only a 2 small bowls to wash after.
This recipe comes from a cookbook I ordered online called Nova Scotia Potluck - Yummy Food for Friends and Family by Shelagh Duffett. I made two recipes from it the day I received the book in the mail. It's full of beautiful artwork by Shelagh along with tried-and-true recipes from her friends and family. I'm so pleased with this book and have at least a dozen recipes flagged to try.
