      Good grief - I don't know how I missed this. But I do crave an excellent sweet here and there and this will do it. I so enjoy all your homemade pies and baking hubs.And I love that photo.

      Thanks so much - I always have popcorn and pop it fresh. This will certainly work. Wish I had it now with a cup of tea. Whew! Rated up and more. Yay!

      Looking forward to hearing about you baking a vinegar pie.

      Umm, yum, sounds good, I must try this soon. Pecans are my favorite nut, and Georgia Pecans are the best.

      I just tried the recipe - even without the pecans it's delicious. I do wish I could add them though, I just know that it would kick it up a notch. Thanks again.

      I'm making this tonight - without the pecans though since my baby has an allergic reaction to them. I'll let you know how it turns out.
