Mennonite Summer Fruit Dessert: An amazing creation:
So this is a recipe that shows up a lot at church potlucks and summer picnics among the Mennonites. The recipe is versatile in that you can use whatever fruit happens to be in season. Add blueberries and strawberries for a patriotic color splash, or use fresh peaches and raspberries to add a tangy twist. Whatever fruit you choose, you aren't likely to have leftovers with this popular dessert!
I love this desert because it tastes a bit like a "fruit cookie." It’s combination of a sugar cookie and fresh fruit. So at least it has a veneer of being “healthy “with the fresh fruit. You can use whatever you have on hand: blueberries, kiwi, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, you can let your fruit imagination run wild.
