This is dessert that my grandma has been making for YEARS. It’s one that everyone looks forward to at all holiday gatherings and pretty much any time she visits! :) Oddly enough, it’s not that hard to make, but we always let her make it (because it tastes so good). It’s pretty much like an enlarged pie; everyone will love it! The funny thing is, the recipe is for a 9×9″, but I’m pretty sure she doubles it because we’ve only seen it in a 9×13″! :) ENJOY!
