My husband and I stopped while on vacation down south at a small restaurant off the beaten path and fell in love with the dessert that was included with our meal. I had to ask about it and the waitress was very helpful, but stopped short about the recipe. After vacation I came home and after several tries I have finally perfected it at home. It is absolutely delicious.
