Recipe by Rob King

This is mmm...mmm good. Very rich and creamy. The recipe originated at some fancy restaurant, but is a piece of cake to make.

This is a wonderful, creamy, rich dessert. I made it yesterday for the 4th of July (red, white and blue) and we really enjoyed it. It was easy to make. I used sour cream instead of the fancy sounding alternate. I'm glad to have found this recipe. I will make it again. It is delicious!
