This is another recipe I used for that summer shower party. It was so creamy to eat and the flavor just danced on your tongue. Nary a one left. Good ol' "Betty", she has the best kitchen crew. You and your family will love this easy recipe. For added flavor ;try Julz Galloway idea and add dried cranberries and a bit of triple sec. Read about it in the comments.
