"As a former owner of my own gourmet cookie shop, all of my recipes were from scratch, but all of my recipes were ones that were handed down from my family and were made with love, like so many other of you passionate home-bakers. Many of my favorite recipes, just like this one, have come from TOH over the years. I value simple and quick recipes for desserts of all kinds, scratch or not. I appreciate people, like Barbara, who take the time to share their favorite desserts with the rest of us. I don't believe for a moment that Mary-Vance is a "professional baker". As lisamaria78 said, this recipe is a pudding dessert and ANY true baker knows the difference, professional or not. Some of us even know how to punctuate properly. The fact that she took the time to rudely rate a recipe that she didn't even make, speaks for itself. This recipe is divine Barbara and I have the original magazine that you were published in!"
"I made this for 8 teenagers after a collage class Awesome!!!! This recipe was easy and tasted great they wanted more thanks for the recipe it's a keeper :-)"
"Well I am in the busy, lazy baker category and this looks super good. I copied off to buy the ingredients and added to my Recipe Box. I am always interested in 5 stars and especially award winning! I am impressed with reviewers like Ms Patty, who needed to change the recipe and reports that it was still great! Thank you Ms Patty for being positive. I really like to hear why a person did or didn't like the recipe and especially any changes they made. I don't need a run down on how lazy I might be to be interested in a particular recipe! By the way thanks for the recipe Barbara!!!"
"I haven't tried the recipe but wonder why people have to be critical of another person comments. Is it illegal for a baker to look at recipes? Ridiculous."
"If you are a professional baker why are you looking at recipes! Awesome dessert"
