I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER

I shouldn't have done it, I really shouldn't. I'd repent but I'm not sorry.I made this dessert for my visiting teaching companion--who has the cutest baby on the planet, I might add--and I made another one for whoever came by after Priesthood Conference and instead of sending it home with people--which would have been the smart thing to do--I kept the leftovers and today Phil looked in the fridge and said, "Is this ALL the lemon dessert that is left?"

I pretended deafness. And blindness. And then I moved out of state and changed my name.

PS For those who don't like lemon--like my darling daughter-in-law--you can make a chocolate version--with chocolate shavings on top. Very impressive. And how can you go wrong with chocolate?

its a good thing that your dessert was made with lemon and that is not my favorite, or I would have demanded that you make this for me when I come there again!

Now, if it was cheesecake---I'd be a goner...

I thought there would be some lovely critters decorating it but, sadly, no.

My mother used to make this. And always around Easter, too.

I like lemon, but chocolate sounds awfully good, too. Can't wait to give it a try.

Oh yummy! A friend in the Ward brought me a lovely lime dessert similar to that when my last baby was born. I didn't share with anyone. Just nibbled away at it for days, one spoonful at a time. Sadly, I feel no guilt. However, I know my weakness and have never used the recipe she gave me for it. One can only stand so much temptation.

I love sour things and I love sweet things, and this recipe is a combination of both, so thanks for the recipe.

My Grammy made homemade hand-dipped chocolates and Greek cookies, but in between eating sweet things, I would eat dill pickles or I would cut a lemon in half and suck the juice out of it like most people would eat an orange. After all that sour, then I was ready for more chocolates.

I just ran into Azzy's bedroom, because based on what you said, I thought she must have kidnapped Azzy. If she did, she snuck her back in her crib. I would love either version. I will check out the recipe
