Very quick and easy recipe to make. Mine didn't set up at first, but I do think it needs the overnight to set up properly, as directed. Mine also seemed a bit lighter in color than the other photo, not sure why as I followed the recipe exactly - but it was lovely never the less. Thanks for posting a great recipe, Bev!! ** Made for Bevergae Tag 2007**
