Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe requires a BIG bowl... and not just because the recipe makes a lot, but because your family is going to want to EAT a lot of this truly delightful dessert! We halved the recipe when we made it in the Test Kitchen and it still made plenty to fill our largest bowl. We would consider this the perfect finish to any summer supper. Enjoy!
