The missing "something" is 1 C cream instead of 1 C water, 3T butter instead of 1! I make it all the time, and it's just like MY Mother made 'cause I use her recipe.

Nice combination of sweet and a little spicy. It was low maintenance to prepare and cheap as well. I did add butter and I feel it was necessary and gave it a little bit of richness that it wou...
