Absolutely awesome recipe. Thanks for sharing.
This sounds delicious! Can't wait to try this out this weekend! Thanks so much!
did she use this any kind of cake?
I have looked everywhere in my town for pineapple flavoring and I can not find it anywhere. Is there something that could be substituted for this?
pineapple flavoring can be bought online at Karens cookies website nice website
I use something similar to this for my "house" bc recipe and it's delish!
Can anyone tell me if this recipe crusts?
I tried this tonight but it has too strong of a rum flavor for me. I even made another batch with only the vanilla to cut it down, but it's still too strong. Is there anything else I can do to save it?
Sorry - meant to say I mixed the vanilla-only batch with the batch with all of the flavorings and the rum was still too strong. Thanks for any tips!
