Sorry, but I made this for the 4th and the famliy just didn't like the filling. I was surprised because we all love nuts but it just tasted strange.

I remember tasting this recipe at a church picnic in 1976! I believe it originated in the Woman's Day magazine. I remember how much I loved it, but never had it since. I'm so happy to finally have found it! Thank you, Laurie!

Absolutely delicious--we will be having this often. No need to wait till 4th of July. I did try some subsitutions in this recipe and some worked and others didn't. I used strawberry jello instead of the stated flavor and skipped the nuts. Instead of a can of blueberries I used a package of fresh blueberries and cooked them for a few minutes with 1/3 cup sugar and some water. The subsitution that didn't work for me was in the second layer I tried using 1% milk instead of cream--it just didn't work well and didn't get firm--so then I made another mistake instead of waiting went ahead with the third layer. The result--delicious but the second layer didn't become firm--however this also got a round of applause from the family and will be making it again--next time following the directions.
