"I have been looking for a dessert from the 70's, this seems to be it except that crushed Club Crackers were used instead of the graham cracker crust. I am going to try the recipe with the Club Cracker substitution and see if this is the one I was looking for. The recipe also called for Dream Whip as aulait stated."
