Personal Notes:
Janene and Jennifer submitted this, with Janene attributing it to Nora. From Jennifer: This was a must at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners at our house growing up. A favorite special dessert! (Us kids never wanted to have the pineapples in it, though, so mom would have to make two--one with pineapples for her and dad, and one without for the kids!)
