Very good--take this to a family get together and you are stuck bringing it every time for the rest of your life.

This recipe is a regular feature on the menu rotation in the assisted living facility for the elderly where I work. Golden Agers can be so fussy and picky about their meals(partly because they have given up so much control over their lives just to live in a facility like this one--JMHO)but this is always a favorite---even the ladies who normally do not eat dessert(watching their figures, you know)have to have "just a little piece"! Many of our residents have asked for the recipe to give to family members. I've also taken this to several potlucks and come home with an empty serving dish! Thanks Darlene--this is a big winner!
