This is the Barefoot Contessa's recipe. Ina Garten does it best! You can easily substitute ingredients in the filling. I added mini chocolate chips in place of the walnuts for half of the filling. Dried cherries and pecans are up next... possibilities are endless. Expect RAVE reviews - these are fantastic!
