It’s funny how recipes get passed sometimes. This one I was at a church gathering and every single woman there was eating and then commenting, “who made these, did you? did you?” And no one could figure it out. They all kind of gave up and just were like man this are good. Not me. I kept asking and asking until I figured out who made them and got the recipe. Funny thing is, I got a different one first (which is also pretty good) but as soon as I read the recipe I knew it wasn’t the right one. So I kept asking around and finally success!
