Luscious Layer Dessert

"This has been a special occasion must have since I was young. My Godmother made it and it is the top most requested desert in my family for special occasions, but it is so easy it should be made more often!"

  1. Quick and easy. This was very good. I forgot to put the last layer of Cool Whip on top. Made for PAC.


My children laugh at my public name, but I truly couldn't come up with a name for me! Anyway, I am a married mom of 4. I have always liked to cook, but I have never been a recipe kind of gal, instead I have always just made things up as I went (unless it was a baked good). Usually things turn out really well, but my daughters are now late teens early 20's and want me to tell them how to make things, this is difficult when every time you make something it changes. This is how I joined RecipeZaar, I figured if I could begin to post recipes to the site then they could just go online and find my recipes without having to ask. I have also learned that it does save time to follow recipes, I especially enjoy Rachael Ray, even when I thinnk something sounds a little odd 9 times out of 10 it turns out wonderful. As I write I have a pot of stoup simmering waiting for dinner to come! My son has his "fan favs", with the girls mostly gone away to school now its fun to put food in front of him and watch him and his dad fight over it!
