Personal Notes:
Although the core recipe originates from the Old Pecan Street Cafe in Austin, Texas I have made a few changes to make it my own. It is by far one the family's favorites. (I once received one for my birthday that Mike's mother hand carried on a flight from Austin to El Paso. This was back in the day before the airport security we now experience.) The recipe was published in the Austin Alamanac in the 80's
