Minister's Delight

 Minister's Delight
You'll need just four common ingredients to put together this comforting dessert from Mary Ann Potter of Blue Springs, Missouri. "A friend gave me this recipe several years ago," Mary Ann notes. "She said a local minister's wife fixed it every Sunday, so she named it accordingly."
