“I'd never heard of this dessert until I ate it in a small hotel at the foot of the French Pyrenees. I came back home and was able to find this recipe on the internet-- I believe a French cuisine website, but the name escapes me. Quick, easy, and yummy, too. Preparation time includes resting time.”
