An old family favorite that is delicious and irresistible. This old fashioned recipe is one that is always requested to be on the Christmas goodie tray. A great hit at the potlucks.

Made this up for the DS to take to his music recreation group were they enjoyed it. I was lucky enough to be able to use graham crackers (used 2 of the three packets in the box) and used a 23cm square pan. Set in the refrigerator and was easy to slice and remove from the tin once set. Thank you Gerry, made for Aussie/NZ Swap #36 January 2010.
