Raspberry Dessert

Throw it together using Nilla Wafers (or any vanilla wafer), some raspaberries and whipped cream and then put it in the refrigerator and forget about it. Tomorrow night you can bring it out and have a dessert ready to go. Like many of our Grandmother's recipes it does use raw eggs. Obviously if this freaks you out, don't make this recipe or try making it without them.
