    Sweet Baboo's Note:

    I found this recipe in Fare for Friends, a cookbook published in 1983 to raise money for Interim Place, a hostel for abused women and their children. Of necessity, I have made changes to accommodate a diabetic diet, but will give the original ingredients in parentheses. To further cut down on carbs and calories I usually just line a square serving dish with graham crackers (mine takes nine 2-1/2 inch squares) and eliminate the crust base, but if you don't have restrictions, by all means make the graham/nut base. The original recipe calls for strawberries, but I think any soft berry or fruit would work.

      This was a great dessert for people who are on a diet! I used blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. My pan must have been slightly small cause my crackers wouldn't fit in properly, but who cares! Great summer dish!

      A nice tasting dessert & although I have no diet restrictions, I did stick with the diabetic changes! Used strawberries, though another time I'd like to try a combo of berries AND the 'optional crust, too, & the sugar & the whipping cream!! Thanks for sharing the recipe as I'm always interested in finding such recipes that I can make for my diabetic friends! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
