This is any easy dessert that looks pretty and is delicious. I found it in QUICK COOKING MAGAZINE and have made it at Christmas and the Fourth of July.

Easy, simple, quick, different and good. It may be for 8 but 4 of us just about finished it after a large meal!! So easy to do and really tasty. I did this early in the day and just pulled it out the fridge when dessert time came around. Thank you Jean.
