Ingredients

Make a graham cracker crust with:

2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. melted butter

Pat into the bottom of a 9X13" cake pan or glass baking dish. Bake in 350º oven for about 15 min or so to set.

Mix:
2 1/4 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
2 eggs *


Spread over graham cracker crust.


*In this day and age, the fear of uncooked eggs throws people into a panic. Funny how many of us have survived the 'olden' days when we didn't know to be afraid of salmonella because it was not very common. Anyway, if you don't want to the regular raw eggs, buy some pasteurized eggs. There a bit more spendy, but they are available and certainly safe!!



Mix 1 qt. fresh strawberries, or more if you like, with 1 c. of real whipped cream.**


Chill for 24 hours. Serve garnished with a fresh strawberry and addtl. whipped cream.



Kay's note: **In this day of convenience foods, I suppose you could use Cool Whip topping if you don't want to whip up fresh cream! I'm not sure how it would turn out, but I'd guess it'll work. Myself? I'll stick with the "real deal"! :O)

Notes

I was a tween when I first had this recipe!! And I'm well beyond those tween years now!! LOL When my oldest brother got married, I gave a bridal shower for my soon to be SIL!! This was the dessert I made because it was another one of our 'Families Treasures'!! The first time my not-yet-SIL had it at a family dinner, she fell in love with it too! So when I decided to throw her shower, I knew exactly which dessert to make! You know? I don't remember anything else I made for that shower luncheon. This dessert was the hit of the party!! And I have no idea how many copies of the recipe I ended up giving away!! This was also the first recipe I gave my SIL for her own recipe box!! You see, my not-yet-SIL knew very little about cooking, let alone did she have her own recipe box!! My gosh! You couldn't marry into my family and not know how to cook!! My oldest brother did a very good job of teaching her. And she's become rather good after all these years!

OK, 'nuff rambling!! Here's the recipe..........This is sooooo pretty!! Enjoy!

A dash of local for every season
