Found this on foodnetwork.com but nobody claimed ownership of the recipe. It is easy and can be completed very quickly. So for last minute company or whatever - you can have a very tasty and lovely dish. We made it for a residents' family - they were celebrating her 99th birthday and they had already had a big cake & party the day before - so we made them a little something, just for the family. Update: 04/23/2009 - forgot to mention that any berry would be great! I made it with strawberry jam & a starwberry fan as my garnish! Wonderful! :)
