I got this recipe from a friend who brought it to a turkey fry we have every year. No one could guess the ingredients nor how easy it was to make. It is delicious hot or cold. You can add as much or as little cinnamon as you like. We like alot of cinnamon. Taste like a cross between a cheese danish or a cheesy cinnamon roll. Enjoy!!
