We got invited to a cookout for this evening & everyone was supposed to bring a dish to go with the meat that was provided. Since my in-laws have a big strawberry patch I decided to make something with strawberries. Also wanted it to be something on the lighter side since it was very warm & humid today.
I have eaten this dessert before, but have never made it so I went looking for the recipe, found it in my collection & went to work....
