One of our favorites for going on 30 years now this is also called a lush dessert. Found it in a church cookbook that long ago by that name but it's the exact same ingredients with the exception of powdered sugar rather than regular sugar.

This is a wonderful recipe! My aunt started making this a few years ago after finding the recipe on and now my dad tells her she can't come to Christmas or Thanksgiving without it!
