I was just working on my grocery list for my contributions to Thanksgiving dinner and thought I'd share this recipe, one of our long-time favorites.
This recipe came from a church friend many years ago. It's one of my husband's tried and true, never fails to please, all-time favorites. I don't make it often enough! It will be on our family's Thanksgiving table this year for sure. I'm thinking about substituting sunflower nuts for the cashews this time; it just sounds really good.
There are many similar recipes around. Do you have one? What substitutions do you make? Please leave me a comment - I'd love to hear about it! And if you like the recipe, remember to share, pin, and bookmark it so you don't lose it!
