Notes

This recipe came from a friend of my hubby's whom he works with, Westy. Westy also owns Westy's Pub in Cincinnati. He served this at the Christmas party that was held for hubby's work. This was my first time making it and I thought it would set up just a tad firmer so the only thing I can think of that I did wrong was to mix it to creamy and not fluffy as the recipe calls for. It still turned out good enough to give to my mom for Mother's Day! I served this with the honey flavored graham crackers.
