Good morning all!
And a good morning it was for us with this special treat for breakfast.
This recipe came from a new church cookbook I bought...I've been finding lots of good recipes to try.
The things I liked about this were, well, first and foremost, it tasted wonderful. Warm carmel with cranberries and cinnamon....what an awesome combination! It was also easy to make, and I love make ahead recipes.
Even though I halved the recipe, there's just enough left for my lunch today..can't wait!
