Personal Notes:
This was given to me by my good friend, Claudia Hawkins. When our kids were young, and our husbands worked together, we were dear friends. She is a wonderful cook, and this delectable recipe is just one of zillions of good ones from her kitchen.

This makes a great gift -- write a message on it in frosting, and deliver it for a birthday, Valentine, and other delicious occasions.
