What a wonderful dessert! It’s simple to do, looks great and it’s not bad on calories! What more can you ask for! Again, we prepared this at our last cooking class and it was a hit! At least it was as much of a hit as any dessert can be after an afternoon of cooking and eating. But really, it was perfect for that because it it is not too heavy and will work well as the final chapter to any meal.
