My husband's Aunt Fannie used to bring this dessert to family gatherings; it is fun & easy to make. It goes a long way, except that everyone loves it so much - so I make it in a 12 1/2 x 17 " baking pan. It is an heirloom recipe that brings wonderful memories of family reunions.
*Aunt Fannie used a pie glaze, filling & pudding, called JUNKET DANISH DESSERT MIX, Raspberry. (also strawberry) This was in the 1960's; it can be ordered through vermontcountrystore.com, Phone:
800-564-4623. #H1115; 3 boxes $12.95; case of 12: $51.72. Also at soap.com for only $19.95/case.
