    Oh my goodness sakes, this is soooo good! I made a double batch of this last night and took a sample bite, then another and another, well you get the picture. I took some to my Mom & Dad and they loved it and couldn’t stop eating it either! It went together quickly and with no fuss, which is a winner in my book. I’m planning on making another batch for 4th of July as well! Thanks for another great recipe Sommer!
