“This is a traditional french-Canadian dessert that was made during the depression era. The ingredients are simple and were cheap and it is one of those staple desserts in french-canadian homes. I got this recipe online a while back. I did a search for it when I was craving this dessert I had when I was young. I tried it and it tatsted just as I remembered it. Delicious and sweet as with all french-canadian desserts.”
