My friend's mom makes this and I love it! Only thing she does differently is that she sprinkles the graham cracker topping on top of each serving instead of as a crust.
My mom used to make this dessert in the 70's and we all loved it. When I saw it here, I knew I had to make this in her memory. It was so delicious and brought back such wonderful memories. My whole family enjoyed this light and refreshing dessert. Thank you for posting.
This is exactly what I was looking for. It was really great and you have to have experience to know a recipe this good, so kudos and bravo!
