“Its always an issue when we entertain to make sure that the dessert meets the needs of the guests and that my dairy allergic child does not feel he is missing out. This recipe meets all needs. Delicious and looks great. I get frustrated when I'm left with egg whites or egg yolks, so I decided to add meringue to this recipe. Nice and crunchy.”
