Happy Birthday to my dear friend Jan!!!!  Jan is from England and she’s been in America for many years but she still loves the comfort foods from home. So being the cook that I am and my love for trying new things I’ve recreate a special treat for her to enjoy.  This is one we talked about on many occasions and I thought it would be a good birthday treat.
