Heritage Recipe

Company Dessert

Mom made this for company, and her mom before her. When I first served this, my guests asked for a second piece. Elegant in appearance, it is simple to make but not a dessert for the dieter! This dessert recipe is one I have yet to find in any recipe book. ...Kathy Falconer
