How to Easily Remove Dessert from DishLine dish with foil before using, with ends of foil extending over sides of dish. Prepare recipe and refrigerate as directed. Use foil handles to remove dessert from dish before cutting into squares to serve.

Makeover - How We Did ItWe've made over this favourite dessert to save you 100 calories and 9 grams of total fat, including 5 grams of saturated fat, per serving by substituting non-hydrogenated margarine and crushed Nilla Vanilla Wafers for the flour, butter and pecans in the crust. In addition, we reduced the sugar, and used better-for-you products and skim milk. We even added bananas for great taste.
