This variation on a southern classic is lighter and less sweet than tradition usually dictates. My friend Skip Dye, who grew up in the South, says these are the best he has ever tasted, partly because the bourbon is not overwhelming.

The vanilla essence version can be eaten right away but the marvelous bourbon variety is even more delicious when allowed to mellow for at least a day. If you love the flavor of bourbon as much as Skip and I do, but find it too harsh to drink straight, these are for you.
