    Heard some nerves rattling when you said the procedures are “not the average frosting”…
    I really want to try this out. That is what is good about working in the kitchen, great or not so great, you can have your pie and eat it too…Thanks for sharing this post!

    Yum! I kind of want to make this and put it on everything or just eat it with a spoon!

    This would be such a fun idea for a non-pie Thanksgiving dessert. Congrats on the new car!
