      Sharlene, where has the recipe been all my life! We love lemony desserts, and this is going to be our new favorite. I used a beautiful organic lemon from my own tree, peel and juice. The teste of lemon is powerful, a real pucker-upper!

      This will be a favorite. I like LOTS of pudding, so I made an extra 1/2 of the pudding recipe. Thanks for a sweet/tart treat!

      This was a really good recipe, the square was quite substantial and had nice height. It was very lemony and tasty! The base fit into a 9 x 13 pan nicely. My oven runs a little hot so the bottom did burn a bit, but next time I will adjust the temperature and cooking time accordingly. Thanks!
