Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This recipe requires a BIG bowl... and not just because the recipe makes a lot, but because your family is going to want to EAT a lot of this truly delightful dessert! We halved the recipe when we made it in the Test Kitchen and it still made plenty to fill our largest bowl. I would consider this the perfect finish to any summer supper. Enjoy!
