This recipe is absolutely delicious! I made it for a Christmas party and shaped it into a bell rather than a log. We enjoyed the slightly "unusual" combination of ingredients (including the hard-boiled eggs) and I look forward to making this again!

Excellent, but I leave out the eggs. I think they ruin the taste.
