Ring in the New Year with Pineapple Strudel!


Hi Everyone!

Hee Hee! It’s Time to Ring In The New Year 2015! My Grandma loved to make this recipe for Christmas and she also did it for New Year’s Day as a complement to her wonderful holiday meals. We would often watch her make it in the afternoon and then enjoy devouring it after dinner in the evenings! It’s very tasty and reminds of all the happy times during the holidays with our family! We here in the barn hope you will try it for that special occasion with your family and friends and enjoy it!
