"A real summer treat, so refreshing, a great finale for your summer party. Have made this often, the crumb mixture can be made ahead and stored for a later time. This is a make again at our house."

"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!"
