Raspberry Marshmallow Dessert

This Raspberry Marshmallow Dessert is a bright, delicious dessert great for any holiday table.  Raspberry Marshmallow DessertThis dessert came about by accident.  I have been trying to make a “healthier” version of my mom’s Raspberry Custard Pie (which I have yet to post…sorry for teasing).  Anyway, I didn’t want to deal with a pie crust, so I went for a 9×13 type dessert.  Instead of a custard, I made a filling that mimics marshmallows, but it’s totally homemade.Raspberry Marshmallow Dessert
