When I was a child one of my favorite things to eat, when we had a community gathering, was the fruit dessert that Aunt Rosie would make. It had to be the most delicious dessert there and I couldn’t wait to get at it. Sure there were cookies and fudge; cupcakes with sprinkles; and sometimes even ice cream but nothing compared to the savory taste of the sweet red concoction we fondly call Aunt Rosie’s Fruit Dessert. And this year I’m sharing it with the world and my family for the first time. It's been passed around for quite a few years, but I want to make sure everyone knows about it because it is so scrumdiddlyumptious!
I know, you are thinking “for the first time?” and yes that’s right. I’ve been combing through my past and just so happened to think about it because I hadn’t had the delicious dessert in years. I also hadn’t been to a friend and family picnic in a while either. Anyway, I tracked down one person who might know the recipe and sure enough she did, and passed it on to me with all the love I knew she would have. So here for your stomachs delight is a picture and the link to the recipe.
