Neighbor Susie's Oh-So-Yummy Raspberry Torte

So...growing up we had this neighbor. She's a second mom to me. She wasn't able to have kids of her own, so has sort of adopted us as her kids. She used to cook for our family a few days a week. She'd even put the dinner in our oven or crockpot so that we'd come home to the smell of home cooking...how sweet huh? And with every meal, there was always desert - Susie's specialty! She loved to bake, and every time she baked something for her husband and herself (at least every Sunday), she would share with our family because they couldn't finish an entire cake or pie themselves...!?!?!?! If I could bake like her, I sure wouldn't be sharing with the bratty little neighbor kids! Anyway...my very favorite desert is her raspberry torte. I hope you all enjoy this recipe...and know it was shared with lots of love from Susie to me and now to you!

Heat 1 cup of milk with one pound of marshmallows on low heat until the marshmallows are melted. Stir often.

Let cool.

Fold in 1 quart raspberries, 1/2 c chopped nuts, and 1 pint whipped cream (whipped until soft peaks form).

Crust:
25 graham crackers, crushed fine
1/ c sugar
1/2 c milk

...okay...so that's Susie's recipe...but I'll fill in a bit more...

Form the crust into a glass pan and pour the marshmallow-rasperry mixture into it. Chill. When it is done, it should be firm, but fluffy...and oh-so-yummy!

Last comment- I promise
Use a big pan for the marshmallow- mine was too small and it created an explosion of gooieness in the apt.
