After being introduced to this easy dessert, I have since made it twice now and its soo easy! All time fav for family gatherings!!
Made this for youth group snack and it was a hit. I used strawberries for the fresh fruit topping.
I just had this dessert for the first time at a Quilters' Guild Pot Luck Luncheon. It was awesome! Everyone was searching for the lady who brought it! It is light and delicious without being overly sweet. Just the perfect ending for a great meal and so easy to prepare - I am making a pan to take to another pot luck on Saturday. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
