    A wonderful and easy dessert. The first time I made this for a family picnic I overheard someone say how patriotic it was! Now I make it for every July 4th party my family holds. I add blueberries too and it comes out wonderfully.

    I have made this recipe for years. In fact I bought the glass trifle bowl just for this recipe. My kids love it, and every 4th of July my aunt asks me to make it for her annual party.
