    I love this recipe. It disapears fast in my house. To cut back on the sugar, I use sugar free jelly.

    I have always liked this recipe very easy to make. This recipe was the one I used at a county fair and it won when I was a kid in '95.

    I gave it a three because it didn't really pop out tastewise. I bake a lot, so I'm looking for something that stands out. It was pretty easy to make. I do want to mention that I asked everyone who tried to rate it on a scale from 1-10, and I consistantly got 8's or 9's.
