This is my Sister Dianne McGee's recipe She used to make it for Christmas and Thanksgiving and the whole family loved it. It was lost for several years due to a fire and I hadn't been able to find it in my family recipes until recently when I came across one of the first keepsake recipe books that was given to me when I first got married years ago.

It takes a little bit of work but is well worth the finished dessert.
