The flavor was soft and delicate. Lemon was there but didn't overpower this luscious dessert. A perfect ending to such a hot day. Thanks for sharing!

This is perfect--the absolute essence of blueberries--and it's so pretty! The lemon is just the right amount to really emphasize the blueberry flavor without making this a lemony dessert. Just lovely, Chef Mommie!
