When I was a small child one of our neighbors delivered this beautiful pie. I thought it was a pie, but I was surprised it was a brownie with chewy chocolate on the bottom of all this cream. For years I have been making this same treat. It is very lovely to serve for guests or just for the kiddo's. You need to be sure and let it chill very well or it will not set up before you try and cut it.
