I searched JAP for a Ritz Cracker Dessert, and found two other versions. This one is a bit different. My Mother made this dessert when we were kids, usually for company. Years later, I wanted the recipe and she didn’t know where it was. I searched the internet for years and even contacted ‘Dream Whip’ & ‘Ritz’ – neither one had the recipe in their archives. Eventually, I found her old recipe box. This is one of my favorite desserts.
