“Baking has been a cherished tradition in my family for generations. I loved to bake with my mom and grandma when I was growing up, and they were the ones who inspired me to attend culinary school. This recipe is a family favorite, it takes a few steps but the end result is completely worth it and my family begs me to make it! I’m looking forward to teaching my daughter how to bake so she can carry on the tradition as well.”
