I loved the pecans and oats! So good!
I made this for a four-generation family dinner for 16 and it was enjoyed by young and older alike. I substituted my own homemade caramel sauce in the recipe. It was a nice change from the pies that are usually associated with the family dinners I attend. This dessert is deliciously different and decadent and a little portion will go a long way.
This has ben a family favorite since the 1960s. If I only want to make a few servings, I make the full topping recipe and freeze it in a plastic bag. To serve, I make some ice cream balls and roll them in the topping and then pop them back in the freezer until serving time. Yummy!
To lower fat & calorie count you could substitute fat free yougurt ice cream. I find it to be very satisfying
I've made this a few times to take to potlucks, and others always want the recipe.
