Spring Hill resident Cindy Shea shares a recipe she found on foodnetwork.com. This recipe was a challenge. When I first made it the center did not set, so I went to the website to double-check the recipe. I began reading the reviews of the recipe and discovered that the whipping cream was to be whipped before being added, a very important step the instructions originally omitted. So I made it a second time, whipping the cream first. I had high hopes but then it came out of the oven soupy. I let it cool on the counter, hoping it would begin to set. No luck. So I refrigerated it and viola! It set up. It was still a bit runny but very tasty. I have corrected the recipe below.
