Comments
This dessert was served regularly at one of our favorite restaurants, The Holman House, that now, regretfully is closed. It was a favorite requested dessert. I had seen on Facebook where another new restaurant is now serving it and had given credit to two of my favorite people, Twins, Carolyn Herring Eplee and Marilyn Herring Wyatt. Sooooo I private messaged them on Facebook Messenger, and told them to "Give it up". Meaning the Recipe. And they did. I asked if I could share it with y'all, and they agreed. So think of me and the Twins when you are enjoying it!!
