Instead of the frozen berries I was going to use, I found some great looking fresh ones at the market, & with them I made this simple yet OUTSTANDING DESSERT! Was going to share it with a neighbor, but after the 2 of us devoured almost half of it, we decided to keep it ALL in the family! ABSOLUTELY GREAT, & I'm hoping it will be just as good made with frozen berries! Thanks for a wonderful keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
