“My Sister Suzie, found this recipe in the 80's (or maybe earlier) printed in the Twisp /Methow Valley WA newspaper. I have kept the original clipping all these years in anenvelope in my favorite cookbook. It is truly a special dessert, rich and creamy. I love the sweet, high mountain huckleberries we have in WA and this recipe & huckleberry jam are my favorite ways to prepare them. Time listed includes chilling time. I have also used raspberries & blackberries and it was still wonderful.”
