Oh, this is good! It's not too complicated to make but tastes like heaven on a plate. Makes a really special dessert that's fancy enough for the holiday table. It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete from start to finish. Be sure to bring all the cold ingredients up to room temperature as failure to do so will effect the end result.
