I got this recipe from my 92-year-old neighbor who makes this every Thanksgiving and Christmas. She has been bragging for years about how quickly it disappears and, finally, this year I asked her to save me a bite. Oooh, it is so light and delicious, it actually melts in your mouth. A very lite, perfect dessert following a large meal, or any meal. Enjoy!
