Created for RSC #6. Okay, I have a confession to make here. This recipe is not entirely my own original creation. I was discussing the contest over the phone with Sushiman, and being a fairly decent cook himself (okay, an amazing cook), he started coming up with a recipe on his own. With a little tweaking by yours truly, I think we have come up with something wonderful together.... This can be cute little finger food to serve at a party, or part of a dessert plate. As an appetizer, leave out the powdered sugar. If serving as a dessert, bring it on!
