The cookbook is called 3 Books in 1: Church Potlucks, Sunday Suppers and Bake Sale Cookbook.
I had hoped to make this recipe to share it with you, but I spent Sunday after church nursing a cold and resting. Plus, I should have started it Saturday. So I don't have photos to share. Maybe one of you can try making it and share photos with us!
Note: This is to make the day ahead and refrigerate overnight, so plan better than I did! Also, I think I'll be eating this with real maple syrup. :)
