This recipe has an interesting story behind it. MawMaw first ate this dessert at a get-together to celebrate the visit of the author’s brother-in-law on leave from Iraq. It was the hit of the evening. The author tells us that her best friend won a blue ribbon for this dessert. MawMaw gets the recipe, makes the dessert and goes to Holly Beach for a weekend of fun. One of her friends declares it the best dish of the weekend. The friend then gets his Mom’s recipes to submit to the website and finds his Mom had that same recipe, but under a different name. Finally, MawMaw’s mother-in-law gives her all her mother’s recipes in an old recipe box. Her Mom lived until the age of 99. You guessed it – this same recipe was in her treasured recipe box! We also found that it mimics Bayou Goo. Bayou Goo is a pecan crust with a layer of sweet cream cheese, then a layer of vanilla custard swirled with chocolate chunks and topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
