I have enjoyed this recipe for entertaining guest. I usually serve it with a tray of fruit Danish rolls, a tray of fresh assorted fruit (slices of fresh pineapple, cantaloupe, oranges, grapes & kiwi), coffee and orange juice. It will serve 6 - 12 people.

This is one of my favorite recipes of Jean Charrier, attorney's wife and good friend of my home church in New Orleans, La.
