Recipe by Koechin (Chef)
I have made this for many years at Christmas time, but this year I am going to add fresh Blueberries for a 4th of July Red-White and Blue Dessert. With little flags in the top! :-)

My Stepmother makes this at every potluck. Very yummy! She makes it without the brandy or blueberries and she makes the full-fat version;). I've never gotten the recipe, thanks!
