I served this delicious tart treat at our bi-weekly Canasta party.
Luckily I had copies of this delightful,refreshing desert recipe ready for my card playing buddies!
The easy home toasted coconut is an added taste plus.
I am sure it will be a hit at your home also.
This recipe was given to me awhile back from a new friend I met in a grocery store Wyoming!
It is a treasure, and a keeper.
