Lisa’s Notes: The recipe came from a recipe book called Barracuda in Velvet Gloves which was put together by The Charity League in Martinsville, VA.  I was lucky enough to enjoy it for the first time at my Bible Studies Christmas brunch.  I would like to thank Susan Chandler for making it and sharing this wonderful recipe.
