MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 10, 2011

I was given this recipe about 15 yrs ago and have been making it about 10 times each and every summer since then. The whole family loves it. If I know friends will be coming over I have to request nobody touches the dessert.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2008

Many years ago, when I worked in the kitchen at a Hospital, we made and served something similar. It was always a favorite of patients and cafeteria patrons alike.
