This is one of my mom's recipes. I think she got it from a Good Housekeeping magazine. I always take this to pot-lucks. And always go home with an empty pan and many requests for the recipe.

Top Review by Chef Hot Tottie

Delish! The bottom layer tastes like pecan sandies and the other layers are like a creamy, dreamy trip to heaven! Thank you very much!
