I love this stuff! Another family recipe which has become traditional for get togethers. I think Grandma developed this recipe herself maybe because I have never been able to find it anywhere else.

Unbelieveably easy! I made half the recipe in an 8X8 pan. Kind of like my late M/I/L's "cheesecake" recipe. Very Yum! Thanks for sharing Mom10. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
