This is another recipe from a 1970's Sunset cookbook. The recipe is delightfully simple to prepare, yet elegant in presentation. Enjoy!

Very nice dessert. Very light and all the flavors blend so well. I bet a scoop of vanilla icecream would top this off nicely as well. Darn did not have any. Thanks for sharing.
