"I have been making this for years now, since I first seen it. I have changed it up some over the years. I now make it with a graham cracker crust versus the Lady finger (Up here it is hard to find them), in a 9x13 inch pan.

Whenever I make it, there are smiles all around. No one has not fallen in love with this. Remember to double the graham cracker recipe (most are for a 9" cake pan)."
