Going through old recipe boxes, I came across this one. I don't think I ever had the chance to make it. I'm putting it on my "to-do" list for the next time I need to take a dessert somewhere.
I think this is from the 1980s when Cool Whip reigned in the whipped cream department. I'm sure you could use regular cream, and whip it with a stabilizer, and get the same results. One way to stabilize whipped cream is to add 2 tablespoons powdered sugar to the cream as you are whipping it.
