In honor and celebration of the first day of my Favorite Month I give you this recipe. To be honest, it pains me in a way. The Pumpkin Crunch (LET'S ALL PUT OUR HANDS TOGETHER) has been a long-time part of my arsenal.
My secret list so to speak.
But I had so many requests from my Bible Study ladies that I don't think I can with good conscience, refuse.
After all they're my Bible Study Ladies and I think it's pretty clear that my reluctance to share could very well land me in some deep theological water. (And me without my floaties, if you know what I mean...)
Anyway, you'll absolutely love this! You'll love how easy it is! This has been around for years and there are numerous versions. Don't waste your time on the others.
You'll love me for sharing!
Please love me for sharing...
