This is a dish my beloved mother-in-love made often, whether it be for a gathering, or just a family meal.
I remember it with love and appreciate the fact my sister-in-loves still make it too.
(Mom Baker, mother of 10, passed at age 47 of a heart attack, leaving 3 children still at home. She is fondly remembered by her family and all who knew her).
You can use Dream Whip, or Cool Whip (both amounts are in recipe), but you don't want to add too many apples. If you want to 'build' it bigger, add more marshmallows.
This is a wonderful fluffy dish for a potluck or an everyday meal.
Enjoy soon! My mouth waters just to think of it.
