*This recipe comes from my Grandma Smith.  
My dad really likes it and I thought I would give it a try.  I found it to be more intense 
of a recipe for the quality of food.  It was good, but didn't have a wow factor.  It is more
 of a bland dessert that could use some fresh fruit or something.  However my dad likes
 it, so I may occasionally make it if need be.  :-D

This is such a delicious rare recipe and with you mentioning smith as a family name I have to wonder if we're related.
