When I was a little girl my family and I would spend our holidays at grandma's house. Just like every other family, there was something special about this time. Maybe it was the holiday's or being with family, but it is a time I cherished and still do to this day! It was at these get together's that our grandmother would make her special recipe of what she called "pink stuff".
I can remember those visits with fondness. I would run to her, give a big hug and then ask, "Did you make pink stuff grandma?" She would smile and nod.
"Yes I made the pink stuff".
I don't know where or how she came up with this recipe, but it is a definite keeper. Now, years later, I can't help but think of this wonderful dessert and how it had become a tradition with my family. My grandmother may have passed on, but her recipe still lives on and I will always remember her every time I make it. I hope you enjoy this simple pleasure as much as we have.
