This is a family favorite from my grandmother because it is so easy and so delicious. When I was in college, my roommates requested it in December during exams as our holiday treat. It reminds me of warming up on a cold December morning.

This recipe is put together the night before and read to back in the morning. Make sure to follow the order of the recipe so it turns out right. You could make it more Christmasy by adding dried cranberries with the pecans. —ginnygetsfloury
