This is a delicious dessert I make for Holidays. I made it for Easter, and before I could get a picture there were only crumbs left..lol!


This dessert is wonderful for hot weather coming. There is ice cream in the mix, and this is kept in the freezer..so easy to throw together. I like the saltiness of the crust against the sweetness of the filling...Yum!

Everyone will be asking you for the recipe..so be ready!


Recipe from my TOH Quick Cooking May/June 2003 issue.
