READY IN: 8hrs 25mins
Recipe by CIndytc

This is an old recipe from my mother in law....very simple and elegant looking...her size of dish is vague but what I always used was a 11 X 7 pyrex dish and it worked out well.. She also used sliced pound cake if she could not find lady fingers.

WOW! This is the best dessert. I like desserts with cherry topping. Nothing to change here. This is perfect. Thanks Cindy :) Made for PAC spring 2011
