Two Recipes Lost

Deirdre | Jan 10, 2002 11:29 PM

I would love to have two dessert recipes, and maybe someone out there can help me.

1st: A layered dessert that was made with a chopped pecan, butter, flour crust. I think cream cheese was added to this (maybe with a little sugar), then sliced fresh strawberries or raspberries, raspberry or strawberry Jello-O, then whipped cream. I think chopped pecans were sprinkled on top with more fresh berries. Does anyone know this dessert? The woman who gave me the recipe is now deceased, and I've lost the recipe.

2nd: Several years ago I was visiting friends in Fallbrook, CA, and we went to a restaurant there that no longer exists. They served the best bread pudding I have ever eaten. It had apples and nuts in it, and you had a choice of lemon, rum or brandy sauce. The waitress said the woman who made it was not working that day, but that all the waitresses had the recipe at home. I had to leave for Los Angeles that night, and am still hitting my head with a rolling pin for not getting the waitress' phone number. Does anyone know this recipe?
