This is a wonderful side dish to add a little something special to green beans and mashed potatoes. It is so delicious you will think you could eat it for dessert.

So I was skeptical when I made this dish for our family Thanksgiving and even did a disclaimer saying I've never tried it but it got really good reviews. It was the first dish to be completely wiped out today! Followed the recipe exactly and it is will be made again and again. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I tried this recipe last year and by far it was one of the favorites of the Thanksgiving Dinner. My kids loved it. They beg me to make it all the time. It is a Thanksgiving must-have! Read More

Not just for holidays.. I fix this once every couple of weeks. And never have left overs. I did make a couple of changes.. just to short cut the recipe. Used the full can of pineapple and the juice did not add sugar cut the butter in half as well as 1/2 the flour. Yummy! Read More
