    Okay, I cheated. I couldn't stand waiting overnite for this luscious dessert so I took a small bite...and another...and another. Yum!!! But V is absolutely right...it is even BETTER if you let it sit overnite. (Ha! Good luck.) This recipe is just fabulous! Thanks, V for sharing a delicious, quick and easy dessert.

    I made this yummy dessert about 20 years ago and had forgotten about it. Now I will definitely make it again.<br/>It is very light but rich. Everyone will like it!!

    This is nummy dessert. I used walnuts because I ran out of pecans. I will definitely make this again. Made for Market tag 2007.

    I have made this a few times. This is very good. So easy to make. The pecans gives the crust a nice flavor. It's real light and not a heavy dessert.


I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
