Coconut Cream Dessert

Cassie *


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!

This dessert is wonderful for hot weather coming. There is ice cream in the mix, and this is kept in the 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 be ready!

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