Good individual sized dessert. Only thing I did not like was the crust... next time, I'll crush the wafers & make an actual crust for each serving.
These are great for a dessert these can be picked up with one hand and enjoyed.Simple and easy Thank You!!!
I've made this recipe many, many times. It's super easy and it will always be the first dessert gone at a potluck. This is a frequent request from my house.
