debbie's Story

This is a fast and easy dessert! Everyone thinks i spent all day putting it together. Little do they know how easy it is and of course I will never tell....;)I love doing this with fresh apples from the orchards. You can use anykind of fruit you want and can mix them to get great tasting flavors. My momma taught me how to cook southern style, being from the hills of Kentucky.I love cooking and even more love watching my family eat it all up:)I hope y'all' enjoy this one!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
When the Kitchen Crew and I taste-tested this, we used a frozen mixture of raspberries, strawberries, peaches and pineapple. We figured we couldn't go wrong with a mix like that. As it turns out, I just don't think you can go wrong with this recipe! This is a simple dish that hits on all the perfect "dessert" notes... sweet, tart and memorably delicious.
