    Jane' Burch's Note:

    My mother in law gave me this one. It was a hit at Chirstmas. It's a great presentation piece. It is rich and creamy.

      This was SO good! My whole family loved this. It IS very rich, and creamy, and sweet. I just made this for my family, no occasion, to try it out. It was a bit difficult to serve, so I think next time when it comes time to serve, I'm going to stir it all together. I creamed everything in my Kitchen Aid, then added the rest of the ingredients,and it was super easy. I made a double batch, and it filled a 9x13 casserole, a 2 qt. casserole, and two breakfast bowls! What a nice dessert! Thanks Jane Burch!
