I made this in two 8x8 foil pans that came with plastic tops. Took 1 to Christmas Eve dinner with my neighbors, and the other to Christmas Day dinner at my brothers. At both places everyone just loved this!! We all thought that it was quite refreshing and just right after a heavy meal. This is a keeper, and has become the dessert of choice at Christmas for us! Thanks so much for posting!
