Yea. Found this recipe under the silverware drawer with notes "yum" and "oh yes" on it. I vaguely remember. In the spirit of organization, I'm putting it here . . . with "cookies" . . . where it belongs. Not under the silver ware drawer.
Original notes say it's from Amy Sacha. Give credit where credit is due . . . but I don't know Amy and I have no other source.
