Serving the rich, fresh-tasting dessert decorated like the flag is a great salute to the nation's independence! I used a new recipe I found and made some modifications based on tricks my grandma taught me.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2012

I made this for our family picnic today. I put it in a 13" x 9". I ended up with not enough of the cream to put the last layer on , I ended up making another 1/2 batch of the cream mixture to cover the top. It was completely gone, everyone loved it!
