  1. I tried to recipe with the extra stick of butter in it it turned out really good but I feel like it should be a little bit more spices and I’m going to add some ground clove in it and the raisins was very tasty in there I I still love the recipe thank you

  2. I was thinking about adding to stick of butter and some raisins I was wondering will that mess up your recipe because your recipe sounds very nice I like the ingredients that are in them other recipes I’ve seen they want to have cloves and I don’t like that your recipe sounds very tasty
