"I have had so many requests for this recipe! Whenever I make it, it just disappears! It's a nice light and fluffy dessert to serve after a heavy meal."
"I make this each year at Christmas substituting Raspberry jello and garnishing with fresh raspberries. Everyone loves it!!Very simple."
"We just made it without the lady fingers and spread it in a 13 x 9 pan. We also spread some extra graham cracker crumbs in the middle and saved the oranges for the top.The kids loved it and it was very easy."
