This is a recipe that my Mom made on every holiday. It just didn't seem right if this wasn't on the table. Of course, I love it any time. It only takes a few minutes to put it together but requires a couple of hours chilling time. It is worth it. I found photos on the internet since I have not taken my own pictures.
