I hate writing a bad review, but I had such high hopes for this. The consistency was so fluffy and rich that I might have really enjoyed it if it weren't so sweet.

I made this other day to accompany a special ham I purchased from Smithfield (so wonderfully dried aged it was almost a prosciutto). Well to cut a long story short, we cut the ham thinly and put...

I'm all for SIMPLE, so I just poured it into a pretty crystal dish rather than a mold. It was delicious with our ham dinner, and my guests asked for the recipe!

This is very good but i was wondering how long it lasts in the refrigerator because I always have leftovers.

Interesting side note: We've been making this recipe for years and I recently found it in an old celebrity cookbook submitted by Bette Davis.

awesome! everyone LOVED it! I will make it a holiday tradition.
