Personal Notes:
I'm always trying out new recipes to expand my cooking and baking skills. I had a woman at work that was hard to please when it came to sweets. That made it a fun challenge for me then when her birthday came up. I looked for all types of dessert ideas for something the perfect dessert hit. It turns out that this recipe was the winner for her. For someone who didn't like sweets, she ate quite a bit of this that day.
