    Trying this–looks fantastically good and similar to a more caloric southern dessert with Vanilla wafers I used to make in my youth. Only better.

    I like when I find Recipes that look beyond delicious and are healthier. Because I will say I despise that food taste so unbelievably good..but you gain like 900 lbs just looking at a picture of it.
