This is so good! I got the recipe from my M-I-L. The middle is very rich, and tastes like a really creamy ice cream. NOTE* The eggs in this recipe are not cooked.

A few weeks ago my grandfather was taking about an icebox cake that his grandmother used to make...this sounded a lot like what he was talking about so I made it and took it to him on Christmas Eve. I was worried about how it was going to come out but it was WONDERFUL!!!
