A few years ago my mom compiled a recipe book full of family favorites. It's been a staple at my house since the day I got it. There are so many recipes that are priceless to me. They bring back so many happy memories. I was skimming through it the other day and realized there are quite a few recipes there that I had never tried. I've vowed to start trying more of these recipes. If they were good enough for the recipe book I was sure they would be good enough for me. I decided to try this one out first. It was absolutely heavenly. My husband loved it because it reminded him of Strawberry Shortcake. I loved it because it had a hint of cheesecake. Whatever you love I'm sure this dessert has it for you.
