Red, White and Blue Dessert

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Baby Chevelle

This is a yearly tradition in my home since I found this recipe in TOH in 1994. My family and friends look forward to it every year. I make it only on the 4 of July or Memorial day, just because I love the idea of the tradition, but would be a great desert any time. I hope you like it as much as we have.

I usually don't write reviews but I was compelled to write one for this recipe. My family thoroughly enjoyed this! Let me say, as is, the recipe is great, I followed it exactly except I omitted the almond extract (my son has a tree nut allergy). I also put it in a graham cracker pie crust for a little extra crunch. It was wonderful and so easy!! Thank you, I will be making this again.
