This has become the most requested dessert by my kids. I can’t blame them though because it is awesome! I learned about this recipe a few weeks back. My friend gave me this amazing recipe. This was the treat she served the first time I visited her. I loved it so much and I thought she bought it in a pastry shop. To my surprise, she told me that she bake it herself. Give this one a try. I promise you that it won’t disappoint you. Enjoy!
