Lush and lovely! This made for a wonderful summer dessert with great taste and great presentation! I followed through as directed using pure vanilla but next time around going to assure I have some Kahlua. While this made for one of my summer desserts it is a lovely dessert that would make any special occasion all the more special. Thank you Pamela for another great dessert.
