As a kid, my dad made the following recipe regularly and we DEVOURED it.  As my kids get older, I LOVE having them help to figure out how we can recreate my family recipes into 
OUR allergy-friendly recipes.  

I can honestly say that as of today, this is currently our FAVORITE dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free dessert.  It doesn't last much longer than on hour.. if that!  

I have included our substitutions.
