    This is a delicious recipe. I can't find lady fingers in our small town and have used pecan sandie cookies instead. They are a great replacement. A lovely spring dessert.

    I've made this several times and have used a simple graham cracker crust each time (not a fan of lady fingers). Everyone always wants the recipe, there are never any leftovers!

    I made this recipe but substituted graham cracker crust for the lady fingers - it was a big hit!

    I made this years ago and everyone LOVES it! I plan to make it for Easter this year. It's especially beautiful if you put in on a pretty cake pedestal and tie a wide colorful ribbon around the cake. Enjoy!
