About an old recipe that my Mom made and I can find NOwhere.
My Mom made a dessert that was so great. You made it in the old fashion metal ice trays with the dividers removed. It had fruit cocktail and gram cracker bottom and some thing else, but that is the part I don't know, maybe it was cream cheese or something, and it was frozen and served frozen..
It sure was good and I would love to make it.. I grew up in South Carolina,
and you know that makes me G.R.I.T.S. (girls raised in the South)
Oh by the way,,, I love this site....
Thank you for the wonderful compliment! I'm glad you're enjoying the site! The dessert you describe sounds wonderful! I've never made or had that dessert so I asked some friends of mine on a cooking forum that I am a member of called NetCookingTalk and they came up with this:
FROZEN DESSERT SALAD
1 (1 lb.) can fruit cocktail
1 tbsp. lemon juice
16 lg. marshmallows, quartered
2/3 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. drained maraschino cherries
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 (3 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 c. heavy whipping cream
1 1/3 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c. melted butter
Drain fruit cocktail, save 1/4 cup syrup. Add this to lemon juice and marshmallows; let stand until marshmallows soften. Mash cream cheese and beat in mayonnaise; blend. Add marshmallow mixture and then fold in whipped cream. Add drained fruit and cherries. Line 2 ice cube trays or meat loaf pans with waxed paper. Mix crumbs, sugar and butter together until crumbly. Press 1/3 into bottom of each tray. Pour salad onto tops. Sprinkle with balance of crumbs. Cover and freeze 1/2 hour before serving.
I hope that this is what you are looking for. Either way, it sounds like a wonderful summertime dessert so I know I'll be trying it!
Thanks to all of the members of NetCookingTalk who helped in my quest to find this recipe!
