This dessert is a winner! So easy. I did serve it with a raspberry sauce and whipped cream. My family was snapping pictures of it on the dessert plates! Definitely a keeper!


This dessert was unbelievably good. I served it with a raspberry sauce and whipped cream, too. Everyone loved it and they are super easy to make. The great part of the dessert is you bake them as you need them. They are a great make ahead dessert that you can make, refrigerate and bake while you are eating dinner!
