This recipe is one of my childhood favorite dessert recipes. My mom wasn’t big into making desserts but this was the one I remember that she made and it was the best! It’s easy to make and feeds a crowd. Strawberries are delicious this time of year (well anytime for me). Hope you enjoy this family favorite.
