Saturday was typically the day delicious goodies were baked or mixed up, in anticipation of a little company for Sunday dinner and a sweet here and there to tide the family over during the week. During the week a homemaker would have some tasty dessert prepared for after dinner time. My mother remembers enormous 4 layer cakes every Sunday when they had dinner at her Grammie's house. Grammie Pratt was known for her baking capabilities and always had scrumptious desserts after a Sunday dinner of Italian favorites. This is a vintage 1950's recipe I found in an old Betty Crocker Cookbook my Nana had. A little searching around the 'ol internet has found more than a few adaptions invented. These are just the cutest little desserts ever! Wouldn't they be perfect for Easter time ? It seems alot of recipes of this era 7-Up and Cola were all the rage in desserts. I have adapted this one to be a bit more healthy than some of the ingredients called for in the original, but gals a little cool whip and marshmallows won't kill us once in awhile now will it. The original had a tad too much sugar so these are toned done alot! Can't you just picture Donna serving these up to the ladies at one of her little committe meetings!
