I WAS fortunate to grow up around fabulous cooks. My mother and grandmother taught me to experiment with recipes, and we tried a lot of variations on this one. No matter how we chose to embellish it, it was always tasty. When I make this, it brings fond memories to mind. -Laura German, North Brookfield, Massachusetts

"This was excellent! Mine thickened up nicely a lot earlier than 20 min. I also added the vanilla in with everything by mistake, and it came out fine. Easy and delicious recipe!"
