The one picture of this dessert that I have so doesn't give it justice. I took the picture before baking and the result of this endeavor was that wonderful feeling that comes sometimes from creating a food that looks like you have more skill than you really do. I felt like an artisan baker and even though I was baking off a recipe, it really felt like it was all me.
This dessert was inspired by a dessert had at on a magical dinner that Eric & I shared at a lodge up north in Minnesota. It truly was a magical day all over. The trip was a surprise to begin with, we drove to this heavily wooded area and smack dab in the middle of a 7" snow storm. IT WAS AWESOME!!!
