We love this recipe around my house because we can change it from one day to the next on a whim. Just throw whatever fruit is in season into the mix, and you’ve got a tailor-made treat! —Christine Saxe, Ada, Michigan
This recipe was devised a long time ago by a mother who helped a group of first graders prepare a treat in class. There were enough ingredients for each child to lend a helping hand. Through the last 20 years, I enhanced and revised the recipe. Adults and children alike love it!
