Favorite Ingredient Friday….Strawberry Danish Dessert



Ok, apparently I’m getting nostalgic this Thanksgiving, because while looking for a specific recipe that I wanted to make for Thanksgiving, I found a lot of “oldies, but goodies” in my recipe box.   Most of these I haven’t made in 10+ years!   Here’s another recipe that was shared by my very close friend and  “adopted” sister (we adopted one another 18 years ago when we were both preparing to get married to our husbands :)),  Julie.  This is a recipe that she got from her Mom, who got it from one of their relatives in Minnesota.  For the LONGEST time, we couldn’t find one of the ingredients here in CA, and would only be able to make it when her mom went to MN, and then would come here to CA to visit “us” 🙂    Now I know where I can find this ingredient locally, so I can make it anytime.    Would LOVE to know if anyone else has ever heard of this dessert!
